Donating

Donating your unwanted things to charity or second-hand organisations helps to extend the useful life of items and keeps them out of landfill. Turn pre-loved into re-loved by passing on clothes, shoes, books, toys and more or use our Reuse Tool to find organisations that accept larger items in your area.

Coronavirus update

While reuse stores across Scotland remain closed, please don't attempt to donate any items or leave them outside shops as they will end up going to waste. Hang on to your donations until restrictions are lifted.

Donating

What can you do?

  1. Some charity shops only accept certain items so always best to give them a call first

  2. Use reusable bags and empty them at the charity shop then bring your bag home for next time

  3. Donating online is a great way to pass on items to individuals or good causes

  4. If you’re the kind of person who likes to give to receive, why not try your hand at swap shopping?
