How to Donate

We rely soley on your wonderful donations to enable us to run our swap events. 

The easiest way for you to donate to us is to bring YOUR DONATIONS along to OUR SWAP EVENTS. Saving items from going needlessly to landfill and also giving you the opportunity to get some 'new to you' preloved items to take home.
If you are unable to make it along to one of our swaps, you can drop off your items at one of our DONATION POINTS.

We currently have various donation drop off points throughout the Berwickshire area.
Look for our PURPLE BINS and place all donations into the bin, preferably in bags, especially if donating clothing.
You can find the list below along with the opening times.
If you'd like to donate large items to Berwickshire Swap, please contact us via email or on our Facebook page prior top dropping off. This allows us and the venue to acommodate them and we can then arrange a prompt pick up.
