Education

Choose furniture which will last a lifetime and look into which components are made from environmentally-friendly materials.

Reduce

To minimise the need to replace furniture where practicable choose good quality furniture that can last you a lifetime (or longer). 

Buying pre-loved and refurbished furniture items will likely be cheaper and it is possible to find some interesting and unique pieces.

Rather than replace furniture items, see if they can be repaired.  Check out Upholstery and Supplies in the Yellow Pages.

Reuse

If furniture items are still in good condition, contact our local Koha Shed (via Facebook) or secondhand/charity shops such as the Salvation Army.

Consider donating furniture items to Women's Refuge.

Recycle

Furniture can be recycled if you are willing to break it down into its separate components: refer fabric, batting/padding, metal, untreated timber.

Disposal

Take to waste transfer station.
