  • Does Event Cycle have storage?
    No we don't. We take materials directly from the event or project site and deliver them straight to charities, community groups, schools, social enterprises or recycling facilities.
  • Do we do CSR activites?
    Yes! We work with such a wide variety of organisations who all need help in their own ways. So whether you're looking to do singing workshops with the homeless or build skateboards for youth clubs, clean canals or learn about plastic waste - we can ask our network what they need and make sure there's something for your team to contibute to. Check out our canal clean with the Hilton Birmingham Metropole
  • Where does Event Cycle operate?
    We have a strong network in the UK but we also work abroad. In order to work outside of the UK, all we need to do is conduct research to identify and contact relevant charities, social enterprises, schools and community groups that could benefit from the leftover event materials your project is likely to have. This is to prevent items from returning to the UK and the associated carbon emissions. We will also need to check we are able to legally operate in your chosen location.
  • Is Event Cycle a not-for-profit organisation?
    No. We believe we should be as sustainable financially as we are environmentally and socially.
  • How do I get started?
    If you're an event or project organiser, just give us a call or send us an email: / +44 (0)20 7050 0734

  • I have something I want to donate. Will you take it?
    Please have an inital look at our webpage "Donations". If you have something that is not on that list, please just give us a call, we might still be able to accommodate your donation!
  • Where will my items go?
    Event Cycle has a network of organisations in the UK and abroad consisting of charities, community groups, schools and social enterprises. They are all working hard to benefit the communities they operate in and the causes they serve. Items donated to these organisations are allocated on a first-come, first-served, local-first approach unless otherwise agreed (e.g. preferred charity type or partners given priority) As well as community organisations we have a knowledge of the best recycling routes for a large number of event materials should an item not be suitable for donation. In some circumstances, we may donate items back into the events industry if this is suitable and agreeable for your project.
  • How do I send my items to a recipient?
    There's no need to send them yourself if you don't want to! As part of the service, Event Cycle will arrange the collection or delivery of the items to the community organisation depending on your location's capabilities.
  • Can I request that my item be matched with an organisation in a specific region or to support a specific cause?
    Yes! If you have preferred charity partners or a cause that is particularly close to your heart, we can prioritise these as part of our donations process. For region selection, we are happy to accommodate requests but would prefer to donate in the area local to the event to prevent excess transport emissions resulting from longer journeys.
  • I have items that need to be gone today. Can Event Cycle help?
    If you have an item that needs to be gone today, please email us at and we'll do our best to help.
