19th June 2018

Got an old garden furniture set that needs to go?

If you're shopping with us for new garden furniture, there's every chance you've got an old set that you want to get rid of. Of course, it may be tempting to shove it in the garage and forget about it. We understand the frustration that can come with disposing of old furniture. It's big, it's bulky and yep, it was initially probably quite expensive. But let's face it, it's got to go! And there are many ways to dispose of old garden sets.

How to dispose of your garden furniture set

Basically, you have a few options when it comes to the disposal. We'll run through the methods available - but ultimately, it's up to you which route you go down.

Take it to your local recycling centre - If you've got room to put your garden furniture set in the back of your car or van, it might be wise to take it to the local recycling centre. Here, all you have to do is turn up and drop off the furniture in its appropriate place. To find your local centre, visit the government website here and enter your postcode. Bear in mind, however, that your furniture will probably end up in a dreaded landfill site. There are more environmentally friendly options...

Give your furniture to a friend or family - Obviously, this is one of the most satisfying methods. If you have a friend or family member who would like to take on your old furniture, then why not give it to them? As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure! You may need to arrange a larger vehicle to pick it up but it'll definitely be worth it when you don't have to worry about the disposal anymore. And we're sure your friend or relative will be incredibly grateful.

Ship off your garden furniture to charity - If you're feeling charitable, and you've got no friends or relatives to donate to, you might wish to give your garden set to someone in need. How lovely! Check out the Furniture Re-Use Network to find a local organisation that will take your set.

Sell it online using Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace - You may be surprised at how useful your old garden furniture set could be to a stranger. Using Gumtree or Marketplace, you can easily list your furniture to appeal to a potential new home. Bear in mind, you might not get lots of cash for it but at least it'll be off your hands! If it's in really bad condition, consider just touching it up with some paint or varnish.
