Leave Liverpool Tidy

Leave Liverpool Tidy is a city wide project that aims to re-use, recycle and ultimately reduce the amount of items going to landfill. The project collects unwanted items which are then redistributed to those in need in the local community and students via free shops.

When Liverpool students move out of their accommodation over Summer and clear out items they no longer want, lots of waste is created. But it’s not waste, as most of it can be re-used or recycled. This is where Leave Liverpool Tidy steps in to collect, sort and redistribute items.

Last year over twelve tonnes of items were redistributed through this project. Let’s try and donate even more this time around!

WHAT CAN YOU DONATE?

Clothes, clean bedding, clean and dry towels, toys, non-perishable foods, unopened toiletries, furniture, CDs and DVDs, books and kitchen equipment.

VHS tapes, broken and dirty items and underwear.

 

WHERE CAN YOU DONATE?

If you have unwanted clothes, look out for the donation banks for textiles or ask your reception staff:

  • Carnatic – top car park closest to reception in car park space nearest to reception building (New Lodge) and bottom car park in car park space closest to Rankin Hall building entrance
  • Greenbank – far left hand side of car park, car park space closest to bin enclosure
  • Vine Court – east wing enclosure
  • Crown Place – Peach Street car park
  • Philharmonic Court - east wing enclosure at Vine Court
  • Tudor Close - east wing enclosure at Vine Court
  • Melville Court - east wing enclosure at Vine Court
  • Dover Court – bike enclosure

For other items bags will be left in Halls kitchens. The bags will be distributed from in early May. You just need to fill them with unwanted items and ask your reception team where to leave them when you vacate the property.

If you need more bags please email Lauren Carrington

We will be posting bags to student homes around the Garmoyle Road / Gainsborough Road areas of Smithdown in late May. All you need to do is fill these bags with unwanted items and these will be collected on the morning of Monday 5th June.

There will be a collection point in the Guild’s Street from May until mid June for any unwanted items.
