Donations

How to Donate

Remake gratefully receives donations of unwanted or surplus goods from within our community. We can accept donations either in store during opening hours (Thursday 10-6, Friday 10-4 and Saturday 10-4) or at our Reuse Container at Crieff Recycling Centre (open 7 days a week). Thanks to a collaboration with Perth & Kinross Council, Remake opened the reuse container at the Crieff Recycling Centre in May 2019.

Collections & House Clearances

If you have an item which would need to be collected, then we will do our best to accommodate this. We rely on volunteers to undertake collections, so cannot guarantee that collection will always be possible. We can also undertake house clearances but will need plenty of advance notice to be able to organise volunteers to help with these.

If you have an item that needs collected or a house clearance to organise then please email mhairi@remakescotland.co.uk with the following information.

1. Your name and contact number
2. Your address
3. Photos of the items you have for collection
4. Approximate dimensions of your donation
5. Any deadlines associated with the collection

Please note that we can only collect items located within approximately ten miles of Remake and that we can only collect items from ground level.

Donations We Can't Accept

We want to see our community keeping as much from landfill as possible. We have good partnerships with other local charity shops and community organisations and would recommend trying the following places if we can’t accept a donation.

Clothing & bric-a-brac – Cancer Research or Blythswood, (both Crieff High Street)
