Community groups and charities such as the British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, Oxfam, Salvation Army or the local St Andrew's Hospice shops will readily accept, or sometimes collect, donations of unwanted household items and furniture in good condition.

Charities can also benefit from waste disposal and recycling services by either contacting the council to set up a regular refuse collection service or they can dispose of materials at our HWRCs providing they can provide the following:

  • proof of residence of charity within the North Lanarkshire area
  • certificate of charitable status
  • proof of registration to the Professional Collectors and Transporters of Waste through the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) - this is a free service for charitable organisations
  • provide details of vehicle registrations depositing waste at HWRCs
  • pre-sort material into recycling streams and minimise amount going to general landfill skip
  • book in at least 48 hours prior to arrival - 0345 1430015

More information on what community groups can recycle and where can be found on the Community Resources Network Scotland website.
