Resource Recovery Centre

Op Shoppers in Moss Vale this looks big! Here’s a small look at the Resource Recovery Centre. Thanks Annella for telling us about this place – It looks HUUGGEE!!! “Here’s some photos I took yesterday of the Op Shop where I volunteer. It’s a massive indoor warehouse with mezzanine plus another huge outdoor space. We sell anything and everything – clothes, kitchenware, manchester, electrical, baby items, luggage, books, exercise and sporting equipment, paintings and pictures, crockery, glassware, furniture, anything to do with gardening – including leaf blowers, lawnmowers, pots and fencing, outdoor furniture and building materials…and there’s loads more! The Reviva! Centre is run by Mission Australia and is open 7 days a week from 8.30am to 3pm.  It’s located at the Resource Recovery Centre (The ‘tip’) 177 Berrima Road, Moss Vale NSW 02 4869 1925″ Has anyone been here?  It looks like it would take a few hours! If you have an op shop you’d like to see featured here just drop me a message and send me a few pictures.
