Bath and North East Somerset Council's Waste Services team will be holding their tenth Give and Take day at Farrington Gurney Memorial Hall, Church Lane, Farrington Gurney, BS39 6TY on Saturday 16 November 2013 from 10am – 1pm.
Our give and take days have been really successful. In total we have helped stop over 20 tonnes of unwanted items from landfill and have attracted over 1600 residents to these events.
Give and Take days are a great way for residents to get rid of reusable items they no longer need and take things that they do need, all for free. At previous events residents have donated some fantastic items ranging from garden tools, designer clothing, brand new sets of saucepans and a solid pine desk.
The aim of the day is to reduce the amount of unwanted household items ending-up in landfill and costing the local taxpayer money in landfill charges, as well as reducing the amount of harmful gases being released into the atmosphere.
All residents need to do is bring along their unwanted reusable items (not broken or electrical ) and donate them at Farrington Gurney Memorial hall from 9am with the last donation accepted at 12 noon. We will only accept small pieces of furniture or items that will fit into an average sized family car.
What items do we accept at a Give and Take day?
• Toys, bicycles and books
• Clothes and reusable linen e.g. sheets, curtains
• DVD's and CD's
• Garden ware and tools
• Small furniture
NO thank you!
• Broken or damaged items
• Electrical items
• Hazardous or toxic items e.g. paint
• Foam furniture e.g. sofas, chairs, duvets, pillows
• Gas appliances
• Tools requiring safety equipment
• No bulky items e.g. cupboards, wardrobes
• No baby equipment – prams, car safety seats, bouncer
There will also be a recycling road show at the event where you can find out more about your collections, order containers and pick up a freebie.
