Joinery includes furniture, kitchen cabinets, window frames.
Minimise the need to replace joinery by choosing good quality pieces that can last a lifetime.
Alternatively, buy good second-hand items.
Rather than replacing an item, see if it can be repaired. Check out the Joinery Manufacturers listed in the Yellow Pages.
Refurbish for a new look - sand, paint, replace fabric, fix new handles etc.
If untreated, cut up for firewood or kindling.
Strip for parts i.e. hinges, handles, screws.
Turn an old window into an hold-frame for your garden.
Use it to make another piece of furniture (e.g. turn a bed headboard into a coffee table, a dresser into a kitchen island).
If in good condition, consider donating to Salvation Army or Women's Refuge.
Take to the waste transfer station.
