TJ provides free waste disposal for Portsmouth charity


TJ Waste has provided free waste disposal services to the Moving On Project Portsmouth, a charity that helps families or individuals that are experiencing financial hardship whilst setting up their first home or in replacing household items.

Moving on Project Portsmouth (MOPP) is a registered charity that works alongside various service providers to help these families by supplying furniture and household items that are donated by the general public. They are supported by Portsmouth City Council, who provide storage units at a reduced rate.

Portsmouth Councillor Luke Stubbs, awarded MOPP a grant, which enabled them to purchase a van which is used to collect donations and help with removals. They do not currently receive any financial funding and depend completely on donations.

MOPP was established in March 2017 to help alleviate the stress and costs for those moving into new accommodation after being homeless or in supported accommodation. Since then, MOPP has helped over 200 families and individuals.

When MOPP approached TJ Waste to ask for support with waste disposal, TJ was pleased to assist. TJ invited MOPP to bring any waste they had to their Materials Recovery Facility in Tipner, where it would be sorted and separated to ensure as many of the materials as possible would be recycled.

Sarah Knight from MOPP said: “We would like to thank Luke and the team for all the help given with the removal of all our accumulated rubbish from Grafton Street units – your help is much appreciated.”
