If you can’t get your furniture to a Recycling Centre, you can still donate your furniture directly to a furniture reuse organisation or charity.  Some offer a free collection service.

You can now donate furniture at 15 recycling centres across Greater Manchester to help stock our new Renew shops selling pre-love household items at an affordable price – find out more today. Please note upholstered furniture needs to have a fire safety tag.

If your furniture is not reusable you can still take it to a Recycling Centre for disposal. Your local council may have a collection service for bulky items.
