I looked into this when the former owners of our house left a bunch of stuff for us to dispose of. I was a bit shoked to find out that the organisation charges a £10 collection fee per pick up. Do you know if that policy still stands?
The British Heart Foundation will collected your unwanted furniture, electrical goods,clothes and books etc free of charge to sell on in their charity shops. All donated items must be in sellable condition. Check out their website for more details.
I've tried contacting one of the recommended organisations but the web address didnt work- this one listed in Resources section-
I also tried a phone number but that was dead.
I need to recycle a sofa bed still in good condition but has to be carried downstairs. I will try other places but would prefer a charity to collect- any further recommendations?
We have used restore and we would highly recommend them. The project is fab as it gives local people jobs and opportunities to gain experience in 'restoring' furniture and appliances and is a very 'local' north london project.
Another option for unwanted items of all kinds, including furniture, is Haringey Freecycle. I have got rid of loads of stuff that way, to people who need and want items I no longer want, and not into landfill. Everyone I have recycled stuff to has been extremely grateful for it, and extremely nice. I have recycled all sorts of things, from sofas and tables to unwanted tins of cat food and jelly moulds! It works both ways - if you are looking for a particular item for free you might find it on the Haringey Freecycle site, but you have to be quick. But many of you may already know about it.
