If you’ve been busy spring cleaning, why not donate items that you no longer need at Suffolk Coastal’s free Give and Take Day on Wednesday 19 April – or simply come along and take something away for free!
We’re encouraging people to bring good quality unwanted household items and give them away for someone else to enjoy and maybe even grab something you want instead, at our event at the Royal British Legion in Mill Lane, Felixstowe.
You can bring small electrical items (such as kettles, vacuum cleaners, TVs, irons and tools), furniture (with attached fire label if upholstered), bicycles, textiles (but not pillows, cushions, duvets or carpets), books, toys, complete board games.
All items need to be in good condition. Electrical items will be PAT safety tested before being placed out for reuse.
The event has been organised by Suffolk Coastal Norse, Suffolk Coastal District Council, the East Suffolk Greenprint Forum, and the Suffolk Waste Partnership. It aims to help prevent items being thrown away in the first place to reduce the amount we end up sending to the Energy from Waste site every year. It also provides an opportunity to pick something you need or want up for free and without needing to buy it new.
The event is being supported by the Ipswich Furniture Project, who will be carrying out PAT testing to ensure the safety of any electrical items donated, The Royal British Legion and the Basic Life Charity.
Anything that hasn’t found a new owner by the end of the day will be given to the Ipswich Furniture Project and the Basic Life Charity.
The Give and Take Day is taking place at the Royal British Legion at Mill Lane, Felixstowe IP11 2NL.
