Pass it on

Pass it on - give your unwanted items a new home

Something that you don't want anymore can still be used by someone else. Donating unwanted items can help your local community, especially those in need, or raise money for charity.

You can also help protect the environment as reusing items reduces the amount of waste we send to landfill and reduces disposal costs.

Council services

You can take them to your nearest household waste recycling centre (tip) where a local charity come and collect items if they are still in good condition to sell on or to donate to people in need.

For larger items, you can also arrange a bulky collection through us. Items will be taken to one of our recycling centres. For a list of what we can collect and to  make an online booking.


If you're able to, why not donate items directly to a local charity? Some charities will collect larger items free of charge if they are still in working order. Check with your local charity shops for more details on the items they need.
