Furniture recycling and re-use
- Rubbish, waste and recycling
Summers Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre
Take your unwanted household furniture for reuse to the centre. Items must be in good condition and where applicable have the fire safety label still attached. These items can also be donated to the onsite reuse shop 'Second Time Around'.
Barnet Furniture Centre
Barnet Furniture Centre collects donations of good quality furniture and sells second hand and vintage pieces. Everything from beds frames to coffee tables to crockery can be found at affordable prices at their warehouse in Friern Barnet.
Anyone is welcome to come and buy, and this scheme helps divert tonnes of furniture away from landfill and ensures they are re-used or recycled instead.
