      Choice has served the charity sector since 1999; we have provided a consistently high level of service, have friendly and helpful drivers and have never missed a payment to any of our clients.

      Initially, along with other companies, Choice just collected textiles but in 2006 introduced the first ever book and other dry waste collection service for charities; at last, instead of unwanted books and other items going to landfill, the books were collected and recycled.

      Since then Choice has expanded this aspect of our work and hundreds of thousands of carefully selected text books and educational books have been put to one side and subsequently sent to schools and colleges in Africa.

      In 2015 a new charity was started by the Choice Managing Director so that the process of sending these much needed books to schools and colleges in Africa could be properly processed and monitored. And it is thanks in part to our partner charities that Choice is able to donate hundreds of thousands of older and unsold educational books to support educational programmes in Africa where each book become a most treasured possession.

      We have a dedicated Customer Service team. We will be happy to meet you to discuss your requirements and demonstrate that we can provide an excellent service to your charity.

      We have been working for some years with a large CRA member charity providing disposal outlets for furniture waste across the UK and providing retail waste collection services. We provide a full compliance check for all sites and operate a disposal order process that removes the risk of erroneous disposal charges. Our centralised process ensures that administration is minimised, costs are reduced and we can provide the best environmental solution.
