Recycling rubbish and reuse

Furniture reuse

Free doorstep collection for re-usable furniture

We will collect any furniture that is in good condition, without stains, scratches, rips or tears and could be used by someone else.

Please note

  • All upholstered furniture must carry the 1988 Fire Safety Regulations label
  • Furniture will only be collected from third floor flats or above if there is a lift and it is large enough to accommodate the furniture. Please confirm this when booking a collection.
