We aim to reuse, repair, or recycle as much as possible. What we can’t reuse or repair, we may be able to break down for recycling. So, if it’s missing a cable or you’re not sure if it works, why not let our skilled team decide if your old items deserve a second chance? If you have large items you would like to donate, remember we offer a FREE collection service.
We really appreciate all donations at the Shetland Home Co, we couldn’t do what we do without you. However, there are some specific items we cannot take and we generally don’t accept clothing and apparel as there are many other local charities who deal with these. If you aren’t sure if we can accept your donation, please give us a call or drop by, and our team will be happy to help.
Delivery and Collection
Our friendly van team can also deliver large items purchased from us. Delivery is available throughout Mainland Shetland for a nominal fee, ranging from £5 - £15.
If you would like to donate larger items but don’t have transport, please call and we can arrange a free collection service.
Over the years we have steadily increased the number of components we can recycle from IT hardware, electricals, and machinery.
