Furniture reuse schemes

Furniture reuse schemes

We want to encourage residents to take advantage of these schemes in order to maximise reuse and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Please see below for more information on the reuse schemes in our area.

Some things to think about when you contact any of the furniture reuse groups to request a collection are:

  • are the items in good or reasonable condition and fit for reuse?
  • if the items are soft furnishings, for example settees and mattresses, do they have a fire label attached to them? If not, they cannot be reused by the groups    
  • if the item is electrical, is it in good working order? If not, it cannot be reused by the groups

A free collection service for any good quality furniture and electrical items within North Lincolnshire.

Collection will normally be made within three working days and you will be advised of your collection day when you call.

If you are not at home on your collection day the items will need to be left outside (preferably covered up) with a note confirming that it is for donation to the British Heart Foundation scheme.

If you are at home on collection day, the items will be collected from inside your property.

The items collected are sold at the shop in Scunthorpe and all proceeds go towards preventing and fighting heart disease.
