Charity Shops York: Complete List of Shops & Contact Details

Charity Shops York

Charity shops are widely popular in the UK right now and York is no exception. What better way to spend your day than heading out into York for a look around the charity shops? Taking in the scenery, grabbing a bargain and doing your bit for charity.

Another great thing about the charity shops in York is that they’ll take some of your unwanted items. It’s proven that having a clean and tidy home reduces stress and improves happiness. Add the gift of giving into the mix and you’re onto a real winner.

So, to make things a little easier for you. Whether buying or donating. We’ve compiled a list of all the charity shops in York. Plus, a map which shows their locations so you can plan a route.


But what if the charity shops in York won’t take my items?

Unfortunately, the charity shops in York aren’t able to take every item they’re offered. Especially bulky items. This is because bulky items aren’t easy to store. If you donate a bag of clothes, for example, the shop will sort them into salable goods and recycling. 

But say a shop accepted a sofa or bed which they couldn’t sell. Recycling the item would be much more of a concern. As would storage. For these reasons, charity shops are much less likely to take bulky items.

Here at York Recycling, we offer bulky waste collection. You can see our prices and book online 24 hours a day. Or ring our friendly office staff for an instant quote and book over the phone. We can usually be with you within 48 hours and often on the same day. But for now, here’s a list of every charity shop in York and their contact details. Happy donating.
