Doorstep charity collections for your unwanted items image

Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) has teamed up with Anglo Recycling Company Limited to introduce doorstep collections for unwanted clothing, footwear, various household objects and small electrical items.

All donations are carefully sorted, repurposed and rehomed to others who need and desire the items most. This initiative helps stop items from being sent to landfill and reduces carbon emissions. After costs, they donate 60% of their proceeds to partnered charities. In addition, as part of a commitment to the environment, the company plant a tree for each booking made, giving back to the planet in a meaningful way.

Cllr Clive English, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services at MBC said:

“We are really pleased to be partnering with Anglo Recycling on this simple, free and convenient way to declutter your belongings, while supporting a charity.

“This service is really simple to use, book a collection online and follow the steps onscreen. Pick a charity to support and leave your items outside for the drivers, there’s no need to be at home, although if you are - you can keep the items indoors and the Anglo driver will knock on your door to collect. Please check what can or cannot be accepted.”

All donations need to be put into boxes or bags and 24 hours before the scheduled collection date an email with a two-hour window for the proposed collection time will be received.
