What You Can Do With Your Old Furniture

Furniture, we are surrounded by it everywhere in our daily lives. Over time these pieces of furniture become old, often getting damaged, dusty or out of fashion. Transporting the furniture for disposal is also difficult, as some council’s recycling centres may not accept furniture or allow you to dispose of them. On top of this, not all house clearance companies accept furniture due to not having the correct clearance licences or suitable transport methods. 


Greenleaf Clearance is one of the leading house clearance companies in the south of England and would be more than happy to help you if you are looking for furniture clearance services. With ten lorries on standby and an expert team, you could be our next job! Take a look at some of our reviews here. We’d be happy to help!




Some pieces of furniture like wooden tables may only need sanding down and a fresh coat of hard wax oil to bring them back to their former glory. Or maybe that old sofa of yours just needs a good wash and clean. It can be good to carefully inspect the furniture, determine if you can do any restoration work yourself, or find a professional company to do so is a better option.




Some charities like the British Heart Foundation will allow you to donate pieces of furniture you do not use anymore, given the chance another family could use the item. This prevents the need for disposal whilst also supporting a good cause. However, not all charities will accept furniture, so you should confirm whether they accept furniture items before you try and donate. 




Another great way to prevent the unnecessary disposal of any old furniture items is to transform them. Why not repaint or decorate the wardrobe you no longer like? Or turn old side table drawers into pots for flowers and plants? The possibilities are endless if you get creative, perfect for your kids to get involved with.
