donate your household goods to the bower, and we’ll resell them back to the community at low cost, or get them to people in need via our house to home program.

It’s worth remembering that if you book a council pick up, your items will go straight to landfill. If what you have is still in good condition, the chances are that someone else could use it.

If you live in one of these council areas, you can book a free collection from the Bower.

If you live outside of these council areas, we offer us a paid collection service which starts at $38.50. To find out more, please email us on
