Welcome to Proper Job, Devon's leading community recycling centre.

The Proper Job Recycling Centre


Launched in 1995, Proper Job is one of the UK’s first community recycling centres nestled on the northeast edge of Dartmoor in Devon. The not-for-profit and co-operative enterprise aims to keep reusable items away from landfills by putting them on sale in an Aladdin’s cave of pre-loved treasures.

 Everything from baths, crockery and clothes to garden furniture and building materials are sold at a fraction of their original cost, meaning Proper Job customers not only save money but also go someway to leading a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

 Fiercely committed to principles of sustainability and local job creation, Proper job is also on a mission to develop more UK initiatives around conservation, waste management and recycling of the earth's resources. Training sessions and skill sharing workshops are also offered by the enterprise in its bid to promote the benefits of reusing, recycling and reducing in this modern age.
