We work in partnership with several local furniture re-use schemes. All schemes collect good quality furniture, electrical items, white goods, bedding, beds, curtains, crockery and cutlery - and pass them on to those in need.

What is a furniture reuse scheme?
All schemes are non-profit groups set up to recycle unwanted items within Shropshire. Most have some capacity to restore and repair items but they prefer working, good quality items. The schemes are run by a combination of paid staff, trainees and volunteers.
What items wont they collect?
- Gas appliances of any sort.
- Soft furnishings without Fire Regulation labels.
- Glass items without British Standards kite-mark.
What happens to the items?
Wherever possible the items are repaired and reused by selling them on at low prices. This helps to benefit local Shropshire residents on low incomes.
