Why donate your unwanted electricals to BHF?
Before donating electrical items to BHF, make sure you can answer YES to the following questions...
- Is the item in working order?
- Do all the functions work?
- If it’s a TV, does it have a SCART socket? (This is a 21 pin interface socket usually at the rear of the TV allowing simple connection to other equipment).
- Is the item complete with leads, remote control (and ideally an instruction booklet)?
- Is it in sellable condition? i.e. cabinet/casing not excessively marked (excluding normal wear & tear).
- The mains power lead must not be damaged.
- The cabinet must not be broken or have damage whereby internal components can be touched.
There should be no signs of overheating around ventilation holes
What can't be accepted?
BHF are unable to take the following items:
- Computer Hard Drives
- Electric Blankets
- Electric showers
- Electric Razors (unless in sealed box)
- Sunbeds and tanning equipment
- Wall and ceiling lights
What else can I do?
If the item is not suitable for donation to the British Heart Foundation, why not consider recycling it? Electricals contain valuable materials such as silver that can be used again, saving precious new resources.
