For a fourth year Rushcliffe residents are being asked to kindly place non-perishable food and clothes donations out with their bin to help local homeless charity The Friary.
Last year local people donated an astonishing 12 tonnes of goods that go directly to those in need.
Waste teams will collect the goods left on the edge of properties across the borough in line with collecting bins as usual from January 6-10, 2020.
Items can also be deposited at the Council’s Customer Contact Centre on Rectory Road in West Bridgford.
Residents should place items in carrier bags for the council to collect at the same time they place their grey or blue bin out for collections.
The charity have asked wherever possible to donate items from their ‘most needed list’ below. These really help vulnerable people at this time of year and the items will be stored thanks to Concept Accommodation.
