Postage Stamps

Whilst not a major issue in terms of rubbish and they can go into paper recycling; postage stamps can be donated to charity where they can then sell them on to raise funds.

I have always saved any postage stamps which came into the house and used to donate to a collection on the mobile library van, but that ceased.

I have just recently found the address for a RNLI collection point, and am happy to say received an email at the weekend confirming they are still collecting these and will accept any quantity.

For anyone interested in collecting as well the address is:

  1. My Mum always gathers them and gives them to the local charity for the missions...

    As a kiddie, I used to collect them and even bought some fancy ones on several occasions, so I appreciate the fact that they may delight some happy collectors!! :)

    much better than recycling! :)

  2. Thanks. I always collect stamps off envelopes, but I've no idea what to do with them, until now that is. There is quite a bundle clogging up a drawer.
