We work alongside our local charity Clean Conscience by donating your unwanted household items that are then repurposed to help raise much need additional funds to support the charity and its endeavours.
Clean Conscience is a unique charity that helps UK hotels, restaurants, pubs and offices deal with challenging waste streams like redundant or surplus furniture, mattresses, bedding, mirrors, soft furnishings, small electrical equipment and so much more.
Items that are salvaged are donated to other charities that they support, or offered back to the public in exchange for a donation to support their own charity funds.
Over the years they have supported 33 other community organisations and registered charities in the UK, one in Sierra Leone and six in Lithuania.
They have successfully assisted organisations that needed help with diverting more than 5,500 tons of items, that still had a resource value, from being landfilled or incinerated.
How we work with Clean Conscience
It’s really easy and there are a couple of options available. In the first instance please contact Clean Conscience on 07941 542 222. You will be asked to describe the items you have and they will ask you to send over photographs on What’s App.
They will let you know what they can and can't take. Of the items they can take, they will send us a copy of the photograph to know what to expect from you. You can then call us on 01628 337 337 to make arrangements to drop the items to at Cookham at your own cost. We will then hold the items and deliver at no cost to Clean Conscience when we have a fully loaded vehicle.
There is no charge by Cookham Waste & Recycling in either instance for the onward forwarding of items to Clean Conscience
IMPORTANT If when you drop items into us, there are items that are not on the agreed schedule and photo’s received, we can take them in, but will charge you a fee to do so as general waste and recycling as per our published price list.
Take a look below at the items that they can accept.
