Stourbridge Civic Amenity Site currently doesn’t have any plans for a Reuse / Recycling Shop.

Plans for a local ‘Positive News’ type publication

We ourselves are working on getting a small community publication going for the Stourbridge area which will feature local people and organisations who are contributing to the community through looking after the environment, charity-work, or social enterprise.

The aim of the publication is to help projects and people connect. We are sure there are many good things happening in and around Stourbridge, but not everyone knows about it. We’d like to change that.

Anyone interested in helping us out,  do get in contact.
