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.
You can also take reusable DIY waste to one of our DIY reuse points (opens in a new window) at South Access Road Reuse and Recycling Centre in Waltham Forest or Summers Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre in Barnet.
