Donating Furniture to us
Here at RE>BUILD we reuse a large range of household items from sofas to the kitchen sink, literally. A more detailed list can be seen below. RE>BUILD would not be possible without your very generous donations. There are multiple ways in which you can donate:
- You can call us on 0161-764-0444 to arrange a collection date.
- Drop the items off at our warehouse (4 Park Road, Bury, BL9 5BQ)
- Drop them off at our container at the Radcliffe recycling centre at Cemetery Rd.
Our Collection Process
The process that we always operate under is that we cannot guarantee to collect any items before a member of staff has seen them. With the case of arranging a collection with us we wouldn’t be able say if we can reuse the items until the driver has seen them on the date of collection. Similarly with dropping off items at the warehouse a member of staff will have a quick look at the items before we help you unload it.
Restrictions and limitations
- Any items with fabric would need a fire label attached. For example mattresses, divan bed bases, sofas, armchairs and upholstered dining chairs. Please click here to see a description of the labels needed
- We don’t collect single armchairs on their own which were part of a suite
- We give the guideline that if wooden or metal units are larger than 4 foot (122 cm), then they are too large to collect.
- Any units with glass would need to be safety glass
- Small items like bric a brac, kitchen ware and clothes, we ask that they are boxed up or bagged up.
- Fridges and freezers we would need to see in working condition. For this we ask if you could leave it on the night before the collection.
- We can only reuse electric cookers. We can still collect gas cookers but they would only be recycled.
- TV’s will either need a built-in freeview box or separate box.
