Bentley Exchange: your monthly #zerowaste #austerity-busting bring and take stall

Hi all,

Coming up is our monthly Bentley Exchange ‘bring and take’ table, in the walk-through between Humberstone Avenue & Letsbe Avenue (the one furthest from the Mancunian Way). Starts on Saturday 12 midday and ends on Sunday at 4pm.

Bring things you don’t need & take what you need!

Please try to bring things on Saturday so people have a chance to take it, and there’s less for the landfill on Sunday. Also, try not to be too noisy as it disturbs the neighbours.

For it to work, it needs your help…you can just give it a quick tidy when you’re there, think about what you’re putting out or taking away, or volunteer to help set it up or sort it all out at the end. If you would like to help just turn up at midday on Saturday and chat to the folks setting it up and/or come on Sunday to help pack away.

Or contact us on

Please don’t bring:

Anything before Saturday at noon – thinking about the neighbours and volunteers

Broken things – if you think someone could fix it, then leave a note on it saying what doesn’t work

Recycling or rubbish – if it’s ready for the bin, you know where (else) to put it!

Bulky items – advertise this on the ‘shout’ email list or contact the nearby Wesley Community Furniture Project for a free pick up; if broken, contact the council. If you leave it here and no-one wants it, it makes it hard for the volunteers at the end. We had to drive a fridge to the tip last time which was a bit leaky!
