B&Q - Community re-use
B&Q stores have been donating unsellable materials and products to local community groups for many years. It's a great way to reduce waste whilst helping the community.
The types of material includes:
Wood, including off cuts and single use pallets
Plastic plant pots and trays
Damaged or part filled cans of paint.
Broken tiles and slabs
Ends of wallpaper rolls
Plants that are not in peak condition and other compostable materials
Old products that have been written off
If your charity, community group, college or school would like to find out more, visit the B&Q website and get added to their database of community groups. When a B&Q store has something to donate, they will use this list to get in touch with groups in their area.
