Alias
furniture

If it's in good condition, furniture could be sold online, taken to a charity shop or given away on websites like Freecycle (opens in a new window) or Freegle (opens in a new window). Some local authorities and charities might even collect reusable items from your home. Please note that any furniture containing upholstery needs to have a fire label on it, or it cannot be reused - see Reuse Network website page (opens in a new window).

You can make use of your local council's bulky collection service (open in a new window), but there can be a charge for the bulky waste collection services.

You can also take furniture to one of north London’s reuse and recycling centres (RRCs) (opens in a new window). If it is reusable, it will be put aside and sold in our Reuse Shop. If not reusable, it will be recycled where possible.

Please note that non-reusable furniture can only be taken to Kings Road Reuse and Recycling Centre if it is broken up into the different types of material, like wood and metal.
