Work on the redevelopment of Foxhall Recycling Centre, which is operated on behalf of the council by FCC Environment, began in October.
Once complete there will be increased capacity for cars on site, reduced queuing, and improved access from Foxhall Road, plus greater capacity to meet future growth.
Councillor Richard Smith, Suffolk County Council Cabinet member for Economic Development, Transport Strategy and Waste, said: ‘We are delighted to be re-locating the reuse shop at Foxhall as part of our phased approach to redeveloping our facilities yet still delivering on our agenda to encourage reuse and thereby avoid waste.
“By purchasing items from the Re-use Shop you are not only extending the life and use of the items instead of throwing them away, you are supporting a local charity that undertakes important work throughout Suffolk.”
The Benjamin Foundation works via a range of services to prevent youth homelessness, provide emotional wellbeing support, and offer positive activities for young people, including young carers.
Paul Sinclair, the foundation’s Operations Manager, said: “We know times are tight right now which means our vital work supporting young people is more important than ever before.
“Every item the public donates and that they buy from our shops really does make a difference, so rather than shutting shop in Foxhall for a while we are relocating to allow shoppers to continue to bag bargains for a good cause.
“We are sure this new location will prove a popular choice both for our regular customers and hopefully we will bring new residents into our reuse revolution.”
