Furniture Reuse Scheme

Social landlords dispose of thousands of items of furniture left behind in properties every year. Some of this furniture is good quality and could reused, gifted to tenants who would otherwise struggle to furnish their home.

It can help landlords to achieve carbon reduction targets by minimising waste too.

Stockport Homes Group run a very successful furniture reuse scheme, collecting from voids, but also from homes across Stockport, (not just their own properties). They only collect items that are suitable for reuse and offer items for free to tenants who need them. They also offer preloved items to tenants who are taking a furnished tenancy. All the items covered through the service charge are new, but the level of service charge can effectively be reduced by tenants taking free preloved items to supplement their package.
