Controversial town tip shop looks set to get a new home

A NEW home has been earmarked for Daventry’s tip shop.

At the end of last year the shop on the High Street, which sold goods that were recycled from the tip on Browns Road, closed down.

It had come under criticism from traders for being in the town centre, and now it looks set to reopen at the old band hall on Waterloo.

Recyclemart runs the shop and manager David Barrett said: “We need to go through the planning process to get a change of use for the building but we are confident.

“It didn’t work for us in the High Street but we are confident this move can be successful.

“The overheads will be cheaper which will enable us to make the items cheaper, which is what we need to do with this kind of business.

“We want to provide a good service for the town.
