Recycling Furniture & Second Hand Furniture Donations
Hey, i was sitting on that!
Can i recycle furniture?
Yes, wooden and metal furniture can be recycled….but first of all ask yourself if your furniture is in reusable condition? If it is then you could donate it to a local charity through the Furniture Donation Network!!
Wooden furniture can be recycled at your local reycling centre
Furniture made out of leather or synthetic materials cannot be recycled
Choose good quality furniture which can last you a lifetime or longer! It will save you money in the long term.
If you’re looking for furniture, second-hand is much cheaper than new and you can find amazing one-off items.
It’s great to see that around 400 organisations across the UK are embracing the re-use concept. Whether it is a charity or social enterprise, the services are out there to assist you with your furniture donations.
Charitable recycling is the future, and by donating your unwanted furniture there is a stronger possibility of it being re-used. Many organisations will provide a collection service from you door, and will ensure that your furniture items are given the best possible chance of a new life. Items that are too big to fit into your wheelie bin are far too often taken to the tip, resulting in them being sent to landfill. Donating furniture is the ethical and humanitarian choice. If you need to guarantee a quick collection and you are not sure is the furniture is in ‘good-enough’ condition then use BulkyWaste.org, who guarantee collection for a small fee and refurbish approximately 50% before passing it on to a charity or low income family.
