Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair
We are a charity dedicated to helping local businesses divert reusable waste away from landfill/energy recovery and towards the reuse economy. We are also strongly committed to increasing our recycling provision, aiming to become a community hub for reuse and recycling by providing drop-off points for items such as toothbrushes. We are also synchronizing with other local organisations to promote sustainable development throughout Bristol.
We accept desktop keyboards and office phones for Scrapstore PlayPods. For all other unwanted computer equipment such as computers, laptops, monitors, printers, scanners etc or secure data destruction please get in touch. Byteback IT or Tel: 0117 3706456
Whilst we occasionally accept some furniture SOFA Project is better set up for this as they have sites in Old Market and Gloucester Road. They take most furniture and some white goods. See their website for details.
Collecteco helps UK businesses donate surplus furniture and equipment to charities, schools, voluntary groups, the NHS and other not for profit good causes. Using their ever-expanding network of good causes, they quickly find homes for your leftover kit wherever you are in the UK. Every project generates a fantastic social value report on how donations have helped the community. Please visit our website or Tel 0117 244 3777
Baby Bank Network is a charity that helps to alleviate child poverty and support families at a what may be a time of financial and emotional stress, whilst reducing waste and promoting reuse of items. They collect baby equipment, toiletries, cots, prams and toys that are pre-loved, and pass them on to families in need. It is a free service and all donations go directly to the families that they support.
Donations such as good quality adult clothing, shoes, kitchenware, can be donated to any number of charity shops.
We cannot generally accept paint, but Community Repaint has 2 projects in Bristol that do:
We will take offcuts and manageable donations. For larger quantities Bristol Wood Recycling Project can do paid collections where they will take away any wood waste you have. They also have the option of drop off donations subject to these guidelines and cannot guarantee they will take it: No MDF or Chipboard, nothing with nails in, no timber under 1.5m in length and furniture must be in reusable condition.
