Re-use Santa Appeal

Published by John Crabtree on

The Re-use Santa Appeal is a charitable campaign to provide help for young people across North Yorkshire who are most in need this Christmas. This year, we need your help to collect used toys, games, books and puzzles for young people who might otherwise not receive a gift. Not only will this help to make Christmas easier for many families, it will support the environment by encouraging a ‘Reduce, Re-use, Recycle’ mindset. Re-use Santa is delivered in partnership
with City of York Council, North Yorkshire County Council and selected charities.

Step 1

Make sure your toys/books/games are clean, complete and fit for purpose.

Step 2

Next time you’re taking your waste to your nearest York or North Yorkshire Household Waste Recycling Centre, simply bring your pre-loved gifts along too and let the staff know you wish to donate. They will point you in the right direction. You can find your nearest North Yorkshire HWRC here and CIty of York  HWRC  here.

Step 3

Yorwaste will then distribute the donations to the charity partners. Most will be taken to No Wrong Door, with any additional gifts being sent to charity shops.
