The national re-use phone line supports community based re-use organisations across Scotland to provide the public with a high level of customer service when donating for re-use.
Funded by Zero Waste Scotland, the national re-use phone line accepts a broad range of bulky items in good working order.
The benefits of the service include:
If you have bulky items that are in good condition, could be re-used, haven't been left outside and still have the necessary fire labels (for sofas and armchairs), simply call 0800 0665 820 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday and speak to one of the call handlers about your item. They will take down details and arrange for a local re-use organisation to make contact with you to collect it.
Alternatively you can fill in the online form at any time of day and one of the call handlers will phone you back in business hours to arrange a collection.
All items should be in good working condition. Examples of items that re-use organisations will accept:

Charity shops and other furniture re-use organisations within Glasgow also accept household goods for re-use.
