Kerbside collections

Loading a BHF van

The funds raised by our charity shops are a vital part of our fight against heart disease. The goods that are donated to our shops prevent 25,000 tonnes of textiles and furniture going to landfill every year.

There are a number of ways for people to donate goods to us, including over the counter at one of our shops, through our free collection service and via our book and clothing banks. We have also been working with local councils to carry out kerbside collections.

When we’ve worked with local councils in this way, we have also supported other local charities. We’ve therefore been able to reduce the environmental impact of unwanted goods and to support local communities. We are calling for all local councils to work with charities in this way.
