Give & Take FREE Event

16 March 2024

Do you have items that are in great condition but need a new home? Fix a bike?


Forest Recycling Project is organising Give & Take events together with Hackney Council.

Come to the wonderful money-free event we host in partnership with Hackney Council. Bring along any unwanted items that are clean and in good condition or come and take any toys and books ALL FOR FREE at our big community Give & Take. Before you buy something new, check if you can get it for free at our event!

  • donate items you don’t need <—> take items you need

Give and Take will take place in Hackney on Saturday 16th March at Woodberry Down Community Primary School and will open to the public from 11 am – to 3 pm.

Location: Woodberry Down Community Primary School, Woodberry Grove, Woodberry Down, N4 1SY 

There will also be a possibility to fix your broken item or have your bicycle checked. If your kettle, curler, or toaster doesn’t work as it should you can book a repair. For all of you who would like to repair clothing items (change a zipper, alter the length of your trousers, or fix a ripped pocket in your favourite jacket…) you have the chance to do so too! Please remember that the repairs might take some time so it’s better to be there earlier.


  • Reuse and repair pop-up events allow you to:
    • donate items you don’t need
    • take items you need
    • book to repair clothes
    • free Dr.Bike session – first come, first serve
    • book an electrical item repair
    • donate your reusable laptop

For more information on items that you can donate to the Give & Take repairable items, and booking to repair electrical items, please visit Hackney’s Zero Waste Hub HERE

The Environmental Impact

These events divert hundreds of kilograms of unwanted goods from landfills and incineration, instead finding happy new homes with the people who take them.
