Emmaus at Carlton near Turvey, Bedfordshire is a great place for recycling unwanted items. Homeless people are housed and given jobs within the community. In December 2015 Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall opened the newly refurbished Iola Newman building. This building has a number of 'shops' selling recycled clothes, bedding, furniture, cycles, childrens toys, in fact you name it and they sell it. The companions and volunteers do the work of serving in the shops and are trained in testing the electrical equipment and recycling in general. There is also a Bistro where you can buy a drink and wonderful cake made on the premises or even enjoy a fully cooked dinner.
