This is a great scheme that donates unsaleable products, waste materials or surplus stock for re-use by community organisations. You can use the scheme to reduce special project costs. For example, if you are planning on painting a classroom, B&Q could provide you with the materials you need.
So what’s available?
Items such as slightly damaged tins of paint, off-cuts of timber, broken tiles for mosaic projects and end of line products are donated through the scheme. We know of schools that have received other items, like gardening equipment and Christmas decorations.
Who is eligible to apply?
Community organisations, including schools, community groups and charities, are welcome to apply.
How do I apply?
B&Q operates its Waste Donation Scheme across all stores. Simply make an enquiry at your local store and ask to complete a Waste Donation Form.
