Are you leaving Liverpool this summer or packing up to move house?
Leave Liverpool Tidy, along with the British Heart Foundation’s Pack For Good, is a city-wide project that aims to re-use, recycle and ultimately reduce the amount of items going to landfill.
The project collects unwanted items, which are then redistributed to those in need in the local and student communities. When students move out of their accommodation over summer and clear out items they no longer want, a lot of waste is created, most of which can be reused and recycled. The scheme will collect these items, sort them and redistribute them.
The scheme will take everything except duvets, pillows, broken and dirty items, knives, hangers, and underwear. Food items are collected separately (more information can be found below).
If you live in halls…
If you have unwanted clothes, look out for the donation banks for textiles or ask your halls reception staff:
For other items bags have been left in Halls kitchens or been popped through your postbox. Just fill them with unwanted items and leave them in the following places:
If you need more bags or don’t think you have received any, please email Dave Wheatley.
If you live near Smithdown Road…
Student homes around the Garmoyle Road/Gainsborough Road areas of Smithdown should have received bags through the postbox. All you need to do is fill these bags with unwanted items and put them outside on the morning of Tuesday 4th June.
If you live in Kensington or anywhere else…
There will be a collection point in the Guild’s Street from May until mid-June for any unwanted items.
Donated items will be redistributed to those in need in the local and student communities. The community free shop will take place on Wednesday 6th June and everyone is welcome. *Please note – The venue is to be confirmed. We will post this information here when it is available and share via Twitter @LivUni and Facebook.
British Heart Foundation shops will take place in Welcome Week 2019 which all students are welcome to attend.
Before you head away from Liverpool for the summer or at the end of your course, the Guild Green Team will be on hand to help you clear out your cupboards.
You can drop any unwanted food at collection points located in the Halls listed above or at the collection point on the Guild Street.
Unopened, non-perishable food items:
Don’t worry if the items are a little past their sell-by date, you can still donate them. All donations will be distributed in the community by Fare Share.
Thanks for your help to Leave Liverpool Tidy and help our local community!
