B&Q launches waste donation scheme

Community groups, schools and charities may seek assistance from their local B&Q store through the B&Q waste donation scheme.

The waste donation scheme is co-ordinated in store either by the environmental champion, duty or Warehouse manager who will keep a Waste Donation Form on file for interested groups.

Before any materials are donated, the form must be signed by a representative of the group, and proof that you are a member of that group must be provided.

B&Q can donate waste materials, for example slightly damaged tins of paint, off-cuts of timber, and end of range materials, to community groups, charities and schools.

Please note that it is company policy that health and safety is taken into consideration, therefore electrical, petrol and gas items are not available for donation. Any waste or surplus stock donated must not be re-sold.

There is no deadline for this scheme so in the first instance groups should approach their local B&Q store for in order to apply.
