Unfortunately, we are unable to collect or accept any donations of large electrical appliances such as fridges and washing machines. However, we are a member of the Distributor Takeback Scheme, supporting recycling centres run by the local authorities. Simply visit Recycle Now to find your nearest waste amenity site where your white goods can be recycled. 


 Due to the large volume of donations we receive and the small amount of storage space in some of our smaller shops, it is advisable to call 01656 750829 prior to donating items. We thank you for your understanding and for thinking of Emmaus when donating your unwanted items.
