B&Q Community Reuse Scheme

DIY store B&Q operates a community re-use scheme through all its branches across the UK. The scheme donates unsellable products and materials for re-use by local schools, other educational institutions and community groups, for the benefit of the local community and the environment.

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

All items are donated on the understanding that they will be re-used or disposed of responsibly if they are not used.

Charities, community groups, colleges or schools interested should get in touch with B&Q via e-mail at community@b-and-q.co.uk  . When a B&Q store has something to donate, they will get in touch with groups in their area.
