Leave Liverpool Tidy - donate your belongings!
The Guild’s annual Leave Liverpool Tidy project commences from w/c 23 May. This is your opportunity to donate your unwanted belongings to the British Heart Foundation and FareShare!
As the end of term approaches, you might be thinking about packing up all your stuff! To reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and to support the British Heart Foundation, we are working with the Guild to create donation points in Halls. Bags and donation boxes will be distributed in Halls from w/c 23 May until the end of term. You will also be able to donate food items in the FareShare boxes!
Last year, University of Liverpool students donated 490 bags of unwanted items. This meant that 3.9 tonnes of waste were diverted from landfill. Not only does this have a positive impact on the environment by reducing the amount of waste, but also helps raise funds for charity. Donating your food to FareShare supports the fight against food poverty and waste in the UK. We're all about reducing, reusing and recycling!
What can you donate?
Unwanted clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, books, computer games, CDs, DVDs, electrical items, crockery and homeware.
They will not accept knives, hangers or dirty and damaged items. Pillows and duvets cannot be donated.
Any food items donated to FareShare should be unopened and non-perishable.
How can you donate?
Food donations go to Fareshare, using the Fareshare donation box, and clothing and home items go to British Heart Foundation using their donation boxes. Both donation boxes will be located in Halls’ Receptions from w/c 23 May.
Please place your unwanted items for the British Heart Foundation into the bags provided or any other clean bag. Tie it to make sure nothing gets damaged or falls out. Place the bags in the donation boxes in Reception or the permanent donation banks.
