Recycle those old tools with the Tool Shed Project

Old garden tools cluttering up the shed? Donate them to the Tools Shed Project. They take old garden hand tools to prisons where they are refurbished in prison workshops and donated back to community gardening groups and schools. Tools are collected in partnership with garden centres, recycling centres and environmental hubs. They are transported to one of five prisons where prisoners are taught the woodwork and metalwork skills they need to repair them. They are then given away free to local school and community groups to support them with a wide range of projects.
Tools can be donated at any of the collection points. This link will bring up a map of all of the collection points in the UK  click here The Tool Shed Project can only accept gardening hand tools such as spades, forks and hoes – no power tools or workshop tools please.
Collection points are found in London, Surrey, Cornwall, Somerset, Devon, Lincolnshire, Lancashire and Edinburgh.
A perfect way to clear out your sheds and garages whilst supporting cash strapped local gardening projects. Find out more at
