  • B&Q - Community re-use

    Created: 01/04/2021

    B&Q stores have been donating unsellable materials and products to local community groups for many years. It's a great way to reduce waste whilst helping the community.

    The types of material includes:

    • Wood, including off cuts and single use pallets
    • Plastic plant pots and trays
    • Damaged or part filled cans of paint.
    • Broken tiles and slabs
    • Ends of wallpaper rolls
    • Plants that are not in peak condition and other compostable materials
    • Old products that have been written off

    If your charity, community group, college or school would like to find out more, visit the B&Q website and get added to their database of community groups. When a B&Q store has something to donate, they will use this list to get in touch with groups in their area.
