At Collecteco, we help your UK business find a new home for surplus furniture and equipment by donating to charities, schools, voluntary organisations, the NHS, social enterprises and other not for profit or non-profit good causes.
We have hundreds of charities, schools, NHS trusts and other not for profit or non-profit good causes waiting for the opportunity to receive free donations of office furniture and equipment, enabling us to quickly find homes for your surplus furniture, equipment, and materials no matter where your company is in the UK.
Following the project, we will send you a Social Value Report detailing where your company has had an impact on the community, in-kind funding figures, case studies, weight diverted from landfill, the amount of carbon avoided – among other statistics.
Doing the right thing in partnership.
Whether your business’ office, workspace or premises is relocating, refurbishing or any other activity that generates reusable furniture and equipment; donating kit to good causes such as charities, schools or NHS Trusts demonstrates a triple opportunity:
Good for the Environment
By reducing raw material consumption and the amount of CO2 used to produce, package and transport new products – preventing global warming and promoting sustainability.
Good for Business
By avoiding labour, haulage, and transport costs; and generating a fantastic social value report that demonstrates to your staff, clients, and the community that you care.
Good for the Community
By distributing quality kit to good causes so that they can focus their funds on carrying out core work.

What Good Causes Have to Say
“With your help, we’ve managed to kit out our whole office and, with a good scrub and a lick of paint, the place looks brand new!
Without your support, we would have had to spend a significant amount of money kitting the office out, and probably still wouldn’t have been able to afford items of the quality you provided.
Now, we’re able to use the money saved to directly fund our work providing vulnerable children with confidence building breaks and adventures. We’re so grateful for your support!”
What an exciting, challenging and exhausting 72 hours I have had after securing a fantastic office furniture donation to The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust.
We have saved an excess of 500 items going to landfill and most likely saved over £60,000 in purchasing items.
Thank you to Collecteco and the insurance company that have kindly donated these much needed items. They will help our NHS staff make a difference. So many smiles today after our last delivery of items.”
“A big thank you for the fantastic furniture that you delivered to us. We are all so grateful and really appreciate a company that is able to help our schools where money is very limited!
I personally am so happy that these will not be thrown away – we definitely need to reduce what gets thrown out and try and reuse where possible.
Excellent quality furniture, excellent service and some very happy teachers! Diolch yn fawr!”
