The Shed - Reuse Shops

Due to essential maintenance The Shed re-use shop based at Llantrisant Community Recycling Centre (CRC) will be closed for FIVE days from 11th October until 15th October.

During this time the ramp at the CRC will be closed to the public and may cause some minor disruption at the site. Thank you for your patience


The Shed Re-use Shops are located at:

  • Llantrisant Community Recycling Centre (CRC), Castellau Fach, Llantrisant. CF72 8LP
  • Treherbert Community Recycling Centre, Treherbert Ind Estate,Treherbert, CF42 5HZ


Items on sale have been given a new lease of life having been brought to Llantrisant and Treherbert Recycling Centres and can be purchased from the shops at excellent prices.

The Llantrisant shop is open 7 days a week, from 9.30 am until 4pm and the Treherbert site is open Monday - Saturday 9.30am untill 4pm.

Both shops sell items that have been saved from landfill by attendants and volunteers at the Community Recycling Centres. Items can also be donated to the shops, so if you are taking a trip to the recycling centres, please donate any items that could be re-used!

From books to toys, bikes, crockery, ornaments, DVDs, furniture and much more. It's like a seven-days-a-week car boot sale - you never know what you might find!

Attendants and volunteers check to ensure that items are in safe and good working order - before thoroughly cleaning them and putting them on sale. 

The Shed is ensuring more and more recyclable items are being kept out of landfill, building upon the momentum already created by the Council in improving its recycling record.

During May 2017, the Welsh Government confirmed more than 64% of Rhondda Cynon Taf’s waste was recycled in 2016 – a County Borough record for a 12-month period, maintaining its place above the Welsh average. Initiatives like The Shed will help the Council hit the Welsh Government’s target of 70% by 2024-25.
