Other information and services
Furniture provided at this RRC goes to the Reuse shop, located within the Kings Road RRC, Waltham Forest, where they are inspected and safety checked. Items in the shop are priced affordably offering residents the opportunity to get an item they need or want for a fraction of the cost if purchased new.
Furniture such as upholstered furniture without a fire label, with missing parts, damage that may make the item unsafe or which fail the quality inspection for any other reason will not be accepted at the shop but will be sent for recycling where possible.
Eligible charities can take up to five tonnes of non-hazardous waste/recycling each year, free of charge, to three of our Reuse and Recycling Centres (RRCs): Summers Lane, Hornsey Street or South Access (in the London boroughs of Barnet, Islington and Waltham Forest respectively).
