Promoting re-use and recycling
We have very generously been given a grant of £5,000 by the Merseyside Recycling & Waste Authority (MRWA) and Veolia Community Fund, which was set up to help support waste prevention, re-use and recycling projects locally.
The grant is to help publicise our recycling operations, which we hope will help to encourage more donations of pre-loved goods and furniture to our charity shops rather than being sent to landfill.

We can pretty much accept most things to be recycled as we work in partnership with a number of recycling companies to help us raise essential extra funds for our special patient care. So, please don’t bin it! If you’re unsure on what we can or can’t accept, please contact us to find out more.
Old and even damaged mobile phones / sat navs / consoles / tablets / cameras / old and even broken jewellery / watches / gold & silver / old or new foreign coins & notes / old clothes / old shoes / stamps
Please kindly note that we can no longer accept print cartridges or paper - no companies are paying out for these any longer so it costs us to take them to the local recycling centres.
There is even a car recycling company that we have generously received donations from in the past!
