There is now a permanent drop off box at the Town Hall for old technology and devices. Items will be held securely until the Donate IT team can collect and securely wipe it, ready to be repurposed to those who need them in our community. The Town Hall is open Monday to Thursday 9am – 5pm and Friday 9am – 4:30pm, so feel free to pop by to donate your old devices.
Please also note, there is an additional drop off box at the Welsh Mill Hub which is open daily from 10am – 4pm.
Please remember, if you are donating an Apple device, please ensure it is free from iCloud lock as we are unable to turn these into donations or return them to you.
