Make a donation

You can donate items for reuse at any of our three recycling centres. Items must be clean, unbroken, and in working condition.

We are accepting donations of:

  • furniture
  • garden equipment
  • DIY equipment
  • sports equipment
  • toys
  • bric-a-brac
  • mirrors
  • picture frames
  • bikes
  • scooters

If you are unsure whether an item can be donated, you can ask a member of staff on site.

Donated items will be sold in our shop, distributed to local charities, or donated for reuse via our Welfare Support teams.

Paying for items

Warning Our shop is cashless. We only take card payments.

If you are in our reuse shop and wish to purchase an item, you will need the ticket number displayed on the item to make a payment. You can then use the ticket number to make a payment online.

Why we are re-using items

In 2022 to 2023, we reached a reuse, recycling, and composting rate of 59%. However, only 0.02% of this material was sent for reuse.

In line with the national waste hierarchy, we are keen to focus more on reuse, supporting the circular economy, and and our core priority of Improving People's Lives.

Many items are brought to our recycling centres because they are no longer wanted, not necessarily because they are no longer usable. We want to ensure nothing is needlessly wasted.

Other ways to reuse items

Repair Cafes

If you have a broken item you’d like to get back into use, the Repair Cafes held across Bath and North East Somerset may be able to help. You can find out more on their website.

Library of things

To avoid buying new altogether, Bath’s Library of Things allows you to borrow useful things for your home, projects, and adventures. Find out more on their website.
