Nelson Environment Centre, generates 70% of its income by keeping waste out of the landfill. We are proud to be a social enterprise that invests in providing jobs for local people; affordable goods to our local community and delivering environmental education programmes to schools, business and wider community.

The front shop is a favourite with many of our regular customers and houses our ‘flash trash’. The back shop includes the outside yard where you will find furniture, timber, building materials, BBQs, storage, bicycles and much more.
