Rubbish and recycling
Can I donate unwanted items?
Yes. Contact one of the following organisations that can arrange collection of larger items:
|Cancer Research UK||01493 442206|
|British Heart Foundation||01493 222100|
You could also think about taking unwanted items to a charity shop; many will accept bric-a-brac as well as items of clothing that are fit for resale. Please only take your items to a charity shop during opening times as it is an offence to leave unwanted items in the doorway or outside a charity shop.
Please do not leave unwanted items as 'free to good home' on the public highway as this is an offence and further action may be taken.
Bring banks are available for clothing and shoes - they are usually found at local supermarkets, community centres and some public houses. Please do not leave other items beside the bring banks as this can be classed as fly-tipping and could lead to further action being taken or the removal of the bring bank.
