Donate or sell your unwanted items

Donate

Avoid waste and help the British Heart Foundation by using their free collection service for donations of suitable quality furniture, electrical and homeware.

Most charity shops accept suitable small donations delivered to the counter without appointment (subject to COVID-19 related restrictions).  Many are too small to accept donations of furniture or other large items, but we have identified a number that can.

These shops:

  • Are located on main roads crossing the borough on the way to Smugglers Way Household Waste Recycling Centre
  • Have access to loading bays or other safe parking options

Please consider donating suitable quality furniture, white goods, small electrical items, books, vinyl records and household bric-a-brac to charity rather than dumping them at the tip. This helps reduce waste disposal costs as well as helping the charities! 

Before donating

It is advisable to give the charity a call before you visit to discuss the item you wish to donate. Sometimes charities may not be able to accept your donation, for example sofas cannot be sold without a fire label.

Items should be clean, dry and largely undamaged. Staff may wish to view them while still in your vehicle, to assess whether they are in a saleable condition.
