RECYCLE AT HOME = NO
Furniture cannot be recycled using your council’s collection service.
RECYCLE OUT OF HOME = YES
Furniture that is in poor condition can be taken to your council-run Household Reuse and Recycling Centre for reuse or recycling (depending on condition). This includes:
- Bed frames
- Chest of drawers
Alternatively you can book a bulky waste collection via your council – a fee will apply.
If you arrange for a private waste contractor to collect your furniture, then remember; it’s your responsibility to check they have a Waste Carriers Licence. If an un-licensed waste carrier fly-tips your waste, it’s you that can be held responsible.
- Furniture that is in good can be donated to local charity shops (locate your nearest charity shops on the Charity Retail Association website), donated to a local Community Reuse Shop (using the drop off point at your council-run Household Reuse and Recycling Centre), sold via sites like eBay or Gumtree or given away via sites like Freegle or Freecycle
- Some charities like British Heart Foundation will collect your furniture items from home for free
