Come along to Give or Take Day on Portland


Give or Take day (large version)

Get rid of reusable items you no longer need and pick up something you do at the next Give or Take Day on Saturday 28 September at the Brackenbury Centre, Fortuneswell, Portland.

The free event is being run by Dorset Waste Partnership and Synergy Housing’s Portland Neighbourhood Panel.

It takes place between 9.30am and 12noon.  Items you would like to give away can be dropped off at the centre any time between 9.15am and 11.30am.

Give or Take Days help to encourage reuse in the community and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.  Even if you have nothing to bring along, you are more than welcome to come and take what you fancy on the day.

You can bring:

  • Books
  • Toys
  • Clothes
  • Tools
  • Bric-a-brac
  • Kitchenware
  • Small furniture
  • Jewellery
  • Bikes and bike parts
  •  Plants and gardening equipment
  • And working electrical equipment

The only rule is it must be able to fit in a car.

Staff from the Dorset Waste Partnership will be on hand with information on local recycling and waste reduction schemes and refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.
