All the donations are processed by a professional recycling company. They hand sort every donation and either sell on the valuable pieces, or break-up/melt-down damaged items, and the residue is sold to a specialist scrap merchant.

Oxfam are having a “Jewellery Amnesty” to celebrate the Diamond Anniversary of their first shop and want any jewellery – costume or fine – whether it’s broken, damaged or as new.
Valuable items are auctioned off and other items are either sold in the charity’s shops or broken down for scrap.
For valuables: Call 0845 6033647 (standard office hours), email, or write to Valued at Oxfam, 34a New Broadway, Ealing, London, W5 2XA.
Less valuable items can be handed in at their charity shops.
