*Small electrical and electronic items such as toasters, kettles, irons, mobile phones, DVD players. No large items, light bulbs or batteries.
Please be aware that there are some companies operating in Stevenage who say they are collecting clothes and will give a percentage of their profits to charity.
All companies and charities who undertake house collections are required to register with us. If you have any suspicions about the company/charity, please contact us on 01438 242242 and ask to speak to Committee Services who will be able to tell you whether the company/charity has registered with us.
One way of always making sure your clothes go to a charity is to drop your clothes off at a charity shop. Alternatively, you can make use of the Recycling Centre on Caxton Way or use one of the recycling banks.
