Furniture Re-Use

Help us recycle good quality used furniture.

 In a typical year we recycle over 1,000 items in West Somerset.

The monies raised are used wholly to fund Engage’s charitable activities.

Our sales recycle furniture that otherwise may well go to waste landfill sites.

 

Donating furniture

If you have good quality furniture or other household items that are surplus to your needs, please contact us to donate them for recycling. For details of the items we accept, please click here. We have a free pick-up service in West Somerset or are happy to receive items at our showroom at Alcombe Village Hall. If you are a UK tax-payer please ask about Gift-Aid. This allows us to reclaim the basic rate of income tax from the Inland Revenue on a donation made by tax-paying donors. For example, if you give us a sofa which raises £60, we can claim £15 from HMRC (the Inland Revenue), making your donation go even further, at no cost to you.

Buying furniture

We have a two-tier pricing structure. This enables us to keep prices as low as possible for people on means-tested benefits who can buy items at a discounted price (please bring proof of benefit entitlement to buy an item at this discounted price). We also recognise that there are many people on low-incomes who may not  qualify for means-tested  benefits but still need to buy furniture at a reasonable price. With this in mind we are making the discounted prices available to under 25's, with effect from 8th August 2017. ID proof of age will be required.

We offer a slightly higher price available to anyone.

We can deliver bought items, although there is a charge per delivery (not per item) – which helps towards maintaining our van.

The furniture showroom is open 9.30 am to 5 pm on Tuesdays to Fridays and 10.00 am to 2.00 pm on Saturdays.
