Charity Collections

We have teamed up with the mental health charity MIND for an easy-to-use service to donate your unwanted textiles and small electrical items. This will help to raise funds and support people with mental health problems.

Donating also helps to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

MIND will collect textiles and small electrical items from your home for free. You can request a MIND collection bag or arrange a collection below.

If you request a bag or order a collection before 1pm on Friday, you will receive your bag/collection the following week - on your usual refuse/recycling collection day.

Please place the bag out alongside your bin on the scheduled collection day. You can use your own bag but please make sure that the bag is clearly marked for MIND, so that it isn't taken by our refuse/recycling crews by mistake.

Textiles and electrical items must be placed in separate bags.
