Communities. Made stronger. Supporting local good causes with surplus products.

At B&Q, community matters. Which is why, last year, we donated over 50,000 products to more than 600 local causes, with our Community Re-Use Programme. From paint to pallets and tables to tiles, our surplus and display items go to those who need them the most, to help build a stronger community for all of us.

It's a great way to reduce waste whilst helping good causes, including schools, colleges, refuges, hostels, hospices, wellbeing groups and youth clubs, to access additional resources.

We work with Neighbourly, an award-winning giving platform, to connect our stores with local good causes.

Watch the video below to see how communities near our Hartcliffe store are benefitting from Reuse.
