AFTER getting fed up with seeing items thrown out that could be recycled or donated to charity, a skip hire company will now deliver charity bags to customers.

British Heart Foundation donation bags will arrive with skips rented from Pink Hire Skip Company, which operates in Portsmouth.

The firm has teamed up with the charity in a bid to encourage more people to donate their used items.

Shirley Bell, the company’s managing director, said: ‘Skips that come into the transfer station often contain many items that could be of great use to others in hard times such as unwanted clothing, books, CDs, games and toys.

‘All of these items can be put to good use for charity.’

Customers place the filled bags on top of their skips and the firm will organise delivery to the BHF.
