A partnership between Essex County Council and the Lighthouse Furniture Project has been expanded giving residents more opportunities to donate electrical items for repair and reuse.

Residents can donate larger electrical appliances for repair, reuse and redistribution to individuals and families in need. They will be repaired and refurbished if required before being tested by Lighthouse engineers.

These items are either passed on or sold at affordable prices in the local community.

Items accepted are:

  • dishwashers
  • freezers
  • fridges
  • ovens
  • tumble dryers
  • washing machines

Drop-off points are located at the following recycling centres:

This exciting partnership benefits individuals and families in need, who may be struggling with the cost of living. It also minimises waste in Essex by keeping items in use longer by repair, refurbishment and reuse.
