Donate your old furniture and household items to charity

If your item is in a good condition (so that it can be resold) you can donate it to a local charity who will collect it for you for free.

Not only will you be helping to raise funds to local community projects and charity work but for large items this option will often work out cheaper than paying for a private company to collect them for you. By donating your items to charity, and choosing not sending them to landfill, you are also benefiting the environment.
