Donating items to charity
If your unwanted clothing, furniture, furnishings, books, CDs, DVDs, and some household or electrical goods, are still in good condition, have some useful life left in them and could have a use for someone else then why not think about donating them?
Recycling items in this way will help local people in need who may not be able afford to buy brand new items and can this really make a difference to their lives.
Charities are always on the lookout for good quality goods that can be reused for emergency re-homing of vulnerable people or sold through their shops. Some may also offer a free collection of larger items.
