Making period products available to those that need them

Surrey County Council has launched a ground-breaking initiative with charity Binti International, to provide free period products in selected locations across Surrey and be the first county council in the UK to start eradicating period stigma.Period dignity

Donate or pick up at selected locations across Surrey

There will be collection boxes where residents can help themselves to pads if needed, in selected libraries across Surrey including Epsom and Ewell libraries. 

Look out for the Binti stickers in libraries that show that free pads are provided in that location. There is no need to ask – simply go to the collection box and help yourself. You can find the full postal address for these selected libraries by visiting the Surrey Libraries webpage.

A Binti app is also available to download so residents can find the nearest location where free period products are available to collect and where you can donate. The app is available to download on the Apple app store for IOS users or the Google Play store for Android users.

Where can I donate products?

Anyone can donate pads to the Binti bins – the more donations the better! Look out for the Binti stickers which show participating venues.
