Reuse, donate or sell your old furniture

The majority of furniture that is disposed of is in good condition and could be reused.

  • Ask family, friends and neighbours if they have a use for your unwanted items 
  • Donate your furniture to a charity shop or local community project 
  • Join the Freecycle network or Freegle. It’s an online network of local people who are giving and getting stuff for free in their own towns. 
  • Try sell unwanted furniture online at places like eBay, Gumtree and Preloved. Locally there may be car boot sales or bring and buy sales. 
  • Furniture that is not suitable for reuse can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre, or you can arrange for a bulky waste collection.

Buying furniture

  • Choose good quality furniture so it lasts longer, it will save you money in the long term. 
  • Choose second hand furniture. Second hand is much cheaper and you can find amazing one-off items.

Reuse your old furniture - upcycle or repair it

If you have furniture that no longer suits your décor why not upcycle it to give it a new lease of life. It’s also a great way to save money, as it’s often cheaper than buying a new item of furniture plus you’ll have a unique piece of furniture for your home.

  • Repair broken furniture 
  • Replace handles and knobs on old draws and cupboards 
  • Try painting furniture a vibrant colour to transform its look, you can even paint it using reused paint via the re-paint scheme in Bradford
  • Adapting furniture can also give it a new look. 
  • Different craft techniques such as decoupage and paint techniques can also transform furniture. 
  • If you don’t have your own furniture visit a furniture project or charity shop to find some furniture to upcycle. 
  • Vintage furniture is often well built so is more durable and likely to last longer.
