Anglo Doorstep Collections is a UK based company, that makes regular, free, collections of unwanted clothing and household items, direct from our customers’ homes.
If you are home at the time of collection you can keep them inside and our drivers will knock. If you are out at the time of collection, please leave them bagged/boxed up clearly placed and labelled. Please add these details into the notes section when booking. If it is going to be raining please try cover them or leave them somewhere they can be protected.
Our drivers collect and deliver the donations to the warehouse, they are then categorised and sorted into clothes, Bric-a-Brac and larger items. After the items have been sorted, we securely pack, wrap and label the Bric-a-Brac items into boxes ready for transportation to their new homes. The items are sent worldwide to the Countries that need and desire the items most. The clothes are sorted into gender, age, seasons and colour categories. Countries will request what the are in need or and we will help supply specifics for them so nothing goes to waste.
All of our collections are free of charge, all you need to do is make a booking and leave your donations outside on the day of collection and we do the rest!
We do not collect furniture, or big bulky items such as push chairs, cots, exercise machines etc
We collect in majority of postcodes across the country, we visit each postcode a minimum of once a month, for our postcodes that get booked up frequently we visit twice a month.

60% of money raised goes to our partnered charities. The rest goes towards running costs for our fleet of vans, warehouse, drivers and staff.
Once we’ve collected the items, the items are then sold in charity and second hand shops in other countries where they are most in need. The items are not recycled. They are rehoused. The money we raise from the sale of these items, minus our operating costs, is then donated to charity. Typically this equates to around 60% of the money raised.
