What type of used textbooks can be donated?

All textbooks that are in the current syllabus and in usable condition (i.e. no torn / missing pages and no scribbling) can be donated.

FairPrice can also take in assessment books, dictionaries or encyclopedias, and they will be sorted under reference category for the public to choose from.

People are discouraged from donating materials published more than 5 years back.

Meanwhile, donors who prefer to physically drop-off their old textbooks that are still in good condition can still do this at all 7 FairPrice Xtra hypermarkets and 23 FairPrice Xpress stores located at Esso petrol stations from 15 November to 3 December 2017.

Here are the details of the book drop-off locations:
