Recycle your old stuff and help us to support older people

black man holding boxes.jpgIt’s amazing what you can recycle these days and now you can do it to help older people in Rotherham. Just drop off your old unused items from the list below and we will do the rest. We’ll send your items off to be recycled responsibly and at the same time raise funds to support older people in the borough. We’ll be helping the environment too.

How to do it

  • Have a declutter at home, collect all you unused or unwanted items. Check the garage, the attic and even the spare bedroom. You can ask family, friends and neighbours to do the same and then just bring it along to our Furniture Warehouse.
  • Do you belong to any clubs or groups? Ask them to hold a collection, we can supply leaflets to explain the scheme and collection bags if needed.
  • Get your workplace involved. It’s a great way to ask companies to raise funds for us without spending a penny. We’ll drop off a collection box and some leaflets and collect when full.
