Here are some easy ways you can donate your unwanted household items for re-use:
The re-use shop at Seacroft Recycling Site is run by Revive Leeds, which is a partnership between 3 local charities (Emmaus Leeds, SVP (St Judes) and SLATE). Profits raised by sales in the shop go to support the work of these charities in Leeds helping the homeless, disadvantaged and disabled.
The shop accepts donations of furniture, clothing, bikes, books, dvds and cds, bric-a-brac and much more. Drop your donations off at the shop and while you're there have a look round and pick up a bargain.
You can also take your re-usable furniture to your local Recycling Site and put them in the special re-use container.
