Man with donated items

Council to pilot next community reuse and recycling event

Dudley Council is asking residents with unwanted items to gift them to a community sharing pilot.

The local authority is holding it’s third ‘Too Good to Throw Away’ event at The Halesowen Housing Hub on Andrew Road on Tuesday 9 July.

People will be able to donate unwanted household items that are in good working order including curtains, bedding, cushions, kitchenware, small electrical items, clothes, food and unused toiletries.

The items will then be shared between charitable organisations in the borough, including Provision House, which repurposes them for community use.

The event runs from 10am to 3pm and people bringing items by car are asked to use the Andrew Road Car Park in Halesowen, which is free for the first two hours.  

Mayada Abuaffan, director of public health, said:

“Passing items on to be repurposed is a great way to reduce one’s impact on the environment.

“It can also help others in the local community, and that’s why we are piloting the ‘Too Good to Throw Away’ scheme.

“Our first two events were hugely successful, and we are excited to be holding our third event in Halesowen next month.”

Residents are politely reminded that the scheme is not requesting furniture, soft furniture or white goods.
