Some items are sold to organisations that send what we class as rubbish to Third World countries; some items are sold for parts, some items are sold for recycling. We aim to minimise waste as much as possible, both to make as much money as we possibly can from all your donations and to keep waste out of landfill.
We encourage you to bring in donations of certain items specifically for recycling. You can find out more about these by clicking on the links below. We also sell other types of materials for recycling (for example wooden furniture that hasn’t sold), although we are currently unable to take these items purely for recycling.
The four St Michael’s Hospice’s Home & Living Stores manage our recycling schemes and you can take donations to these venues. You can also take your donations to a Hospice shop. If you are unable to bring your donation to us, please call your nearest Home & Living Store and we will arrange to come and collect it.
Thank you for your support.
