This map has been created by the Waltham Forest Council and Forest Recycling Project to help you find local places to repair your things and buy and borrow second-hand. Don't forget, there may also be local Whatsapp and Facebook groups to sell or swap your things. 

Save money, support local businesses and reduce your environmental impact by doing this in 2024
