Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council launches pre-loved toy collection

Fri, December 04, 2020

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is calling on residents to give their pre-loved toys and games a new home this Christmas.

A special collection point has been set up at Limavady Household Recycling Centre and the scheme will be open from Monday 7th December until Wednesday 18th December.

Council is working in partnership with Limavady Community Development Initiative (LCDI) who will distribute donations to families in need in line with current public health advice.

Encouraging people to support the pilot scheme, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Alderman Mark Fielding said: “In keeping with our LiveSmart ethos, we want to encourage people to reuse and recycle where they can this Christmas. By donating good quality items which perhaps your own children or grandchildren have grown out off and no longer need you are making a positive difference to the local environment while helping to share some Christmas joy.”

Items which can be donated include:

Bicycles, scooters, outdoor seesaws or slides, board games, jigsaws, books, dolls, robots, or any plastic or wooden toys.

Soft toys, such as teddy bears, cannot be accepted.

All toys will be distributed to local families so please ensure your donations are in good working order and excellent condition.

If you would like to support this very worthwhile scheme, please book a slot here to attend Limavady Recycling Centre or ring 07925358326. Staff will be on hand to direct you to the correct container.

If you have any queries please contact or telephone 07966276239.
