Thank you for your support and stay safe!

When we receive donations of clothing and fabrics that we cannot sell in our shops, we always try and dispose of them in the most cost effective and environmentally friendly way. It is often possible to recycle these goods and still generate a small income.

Last year alone nearly 120,000 kilos of textile waste was recycled, raising around £45,000!

Unfortunately there are a few items that we cannot sell in our shops and that would cost us money to dispose of. We cannot accept any of the following;

 

 Anything broken, dirty, incomplete or unsafe

White goods, computers & gas appliances

Safety equipment including child car seats, helmets & nursery equipment

Firearms, knives & weapons

Toys which are handmade

Pillows & duvets

Upholstered furniture without the correct fire labelling
