If you’ve got furniture you don’t want that’s in a reusable condition, why not donate it to Homestore? They’ll collect it and sell it at an affordable price to families on low incomes. Your furniture needs to be:
- in good condition
- not dirty or damaged
- not dismantled or flat packed
- not left outside for collection – someone must be available to hand over the furniture
Divan beds, sofas or other soft furnishings must have a fire safety label.
You can recycle, repair or arrange a collection for electrical items small and large.
We offer a collection service for bulky items including TVs, fridges and washing machines. Collections must be booked in advance.. Collections start at £15, but residents who receive housing benefit do not have to pay. Please read our bulky waste terms and conditions.
