Donating Goods

We offer a FREE collection service for good-quality items that we can sell on at low cost to those in need of basic household essentials.

By donating your old furniture and household goods not only will you be giving them a new lease of life and saving them from landfill, you’ll be helping others in your local community too.

Your donations can help turn a house into a home.

Here are the answers to some of the questions we are frequently asked:

“I’d like to donate - how does it work?”

If you’re thinking of donating, then give us a call on 01992 578222. We can discuss your donation with you, and provided that we have the space available and the items you wish to give are ones that we can ReUse, we’ll arrange a collection date and time with you.

You can of course bring in smaller items yourself, but please ring us before doing so to check that we are able to receive them.

“What donations do you need?”

Subject to us having space available, we can collect and ReUse the following, provided that they are in good condition and free from rips and stains. This list isn’t exhaustive, so if you have items that aren’t mentioned here, do call us to discuss.

  • Beds
  • Settees
  • Easy chairs
  • Dining tables and chairs
  • Bookcases
  • Wardrobes
  • Glassware
  • Curtains, pillows and duvets provided they are clean and stain free.

We accept the following items if they are in working order:

  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Cookers
  • Washing machines
  • Televisions with remote controls
  • Vacuum cleaners.

“What about Fire Safety Certificates?”

The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations 1988 (as amended in 1989, 1993 and 2010) set levels of fire resistance for domestic upholstered furniture. It is illegal for furniture (whether manufactured in the UK or abroad) not to comply with these regulations. These Regulations are enforced by local Trading Standards departments.

Permanent flammability labels must be carried on all items of furniture with the exception of mattresses, divans and bed bases. Furniture sold as a collection of items, such as three-piece suites, must carry a label on each individual item.

Display labelling indicating ignition resistance needs to be attached to all new furniture {excluding mattresses, bed-bases, pillows, scatter cushions, seat pads, loose covers (sold separately from the furniture) and stretch covers}. Furniture sold as a collection of items, such as three-piece suites or a set of dining chairs, must carry a label on each individual item.
