We're encouraging residents to look at reuse options before disposing of any items. Items in good condition can be sold on, gifted, or given to local charities. Some local charities offer a free collection service, such as the British Heart Foundation.
This is a web-based service for people who want to give and get items that are too good to be thrown away, from things like chairs and beds to smaller items such as jam jars. It's all about reusing and keeping stuff from being thrown away and it's free.
