We want to encourage residents to take advantage of these schemes in order to maximise reuse and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Please see below for more information on the reuse schemes in our area.
Some things to think about when you contact any of the furniture reuse groups to request a collection are:
- are the items in good or reasonable condition and fit for reuse?
- if the items are soft furnishings, for example settees and mattresses, do they have a fire label attached to them? If not, they cannot be reused by the groups
- if the item is electrical, is it in good working order? If not, it cannot be reused by the groups
