Make sure your unwanted household furniture goes to a good home, by taking it to one of Medway’s three Household Waste Recycling Centres.
In a new scheme launched this month (September) Abacus Furniture Project (part of the registered charity West Kent Extra), now makes weekly visits to the centres to look for second hand items which can be sold at low cost to families in need, while preventing the items from going to landfill.
Any unwanted items that are too good to throw away are welcome, such as tables and chairs, chairs, sofas, beds, bedroom furniture and garden furniture.
If taken, the items will be made available to the public to purchase from the Abacus store at 67 Cuxton Road, Strood.
The furniture that is left at the Household Waste Recycling Centre will go for recycling where applicable.
The RE-use scheme is run by Medway Council in partnership with FCC, which manages the three recycling sites.
Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Frontline Services Cllr Phil Filmer said: “This is an excellent initiative to help people to be able to furnish their homes affordably while ensuring as many items as possible are recycled rather than going to landfill. So I would urge people to use Medway’s Household Waste Recycling Centres as the best way to dispose of unwanted furniture.”
FCC’s Regional Manager Neil Jones added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to put to good use, items that would normally have been discarded. The best part is that we are assisting a very good cause in Abacus Furniture Project, helping the local community and excellent causes in other areas.”
The three household waste and recycling centres in Medway are located at Ambley Road, off Hoath Way, Gillingham, Shawstead Road, Capstone, Chatham and Sundridge Hill, Cuxton.
All three sites are open between 8am and 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and from 9am to 4pm on Sundays and bank holidays.
On Mondays between April and September, the Capstone and Cuxton sites only are open until 6.30pm
