Collection day

Payment can be made on the phone by using a debit or credit card. You can also book and pay for the service at the cash desk at MVDC's Pippbrook offices in Dorking and the HelpShop in Leatherhead.

If you believe that your items are reusable or can be fixed, you may wish to have them collected by the Surrey Reuse Network to be re-conditioned and put back into the community. Although there is no charge, a donation towards van running costs of £15 per collection is invited. To arrange a collection call 0800 082 0180 and select option 5.
