Charity House Clearance; regardless of the reason behind a house clearance, or any other type of property clearance, many of the items we take away and which are in good saleable condition are donated to one or more of the charities we support. Almost all of these charities have their own charity shops in and around Essex, and they use their shops to sell the items we donate to raise money.
Specific charity donations vary according to the items we collects as, for example, some don’t accept furniture, some won’t accept electrical appliances etc and whether an individual charity is accepting items at the time. A lot of the items we donate go to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, with less frequent donations to RSPCA Danaher, Helen Rollason Cancer Charity, Farleigh Hospice and Sue Ryder. We have also supplied other charities with one-off donations depending on their needs – for example a van-load of (new) towels and related items which were shipped to Ukraine in 2022.
Charity House Clearance
It’s worth explaining that charities don’t accept anything and everything. Items need to be saleable and need to be the items which they are set up to sell (for example some charity shops only accept clothing, some have furniture shops etc). Items that most charities don’t like to sell (such as books, videos, dvds etc) are instead donated in batches to local residential care homes, whose residents welcome such things.
One of our foremost aims is to reduce waste to the absolute minimum. This is done by in several ways; by donating suitable items to charity, donating items to private individuals with low income and by ensuring that even items which can’t be re-used are at least ethically recycled rather than seeing them contribute to landfills. This includes not just good quality furniture but also appliances, general household items, clothing and even personal effects. Nothing of genuine use goes to waste.
