TO DONATE ITEMS PLEASE CALL 01896 870 455
Don’t tip it! Help us to encourage Re-Use across the Scottish Borders.
Do you have good quality furniture, household items or working electrical items that you no longer need?
If you live in the Scottish Borders and have furniture, household items or electrical items that you wish to donate, the please call us on 01896 870455 (Walkerburn) or 01450 363974 (Hawick) or fill in our online form below.
We offer a free collection service for larger items (suites, beds, cookers, etc). When we call to collect items, the drivers will check that they meet our criteria for re-use. We ask that donors have their items readily accessible, ready for transport, for our drivers on the day of collection.
Unfortunately we cannot take all items that are offered to us. Items that are stained, marked or ripped regretfully cannot be accepted. Other items that we are not able to accept include furniture containing woodworm, gas appliances, upholstered goods must have their fire retardant labels intact (to meet the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988) and electrical items in need of major repair or in a poor condition. Goods left outside in wet weather will also be rejected.
Our drivers always make the final decision on whether goods can be collected or not.
All donated items are taken into one of our depots in Hawick or Walkerburn to be inspected and tested before being sold at low cost to support the Charity, with priority given to those who experience disadvantage in our communities.
And remember, if you are a UK taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donation.
