Revival works alongside Jobcentre Plus, with it's new community hub and job searching facilities, which again is open to everyone and free of charge.

What to do if your furniture isn't suitable for re-use

If you think your unwanted furniture is not suitable for reuse, you can take it to any of our Household Waste Recycling Centres for disposal free of charge.

Alternatively your local district council will provide a bulky household waste collection service under which they will collect old furniture from your property, they may make a charge for this.
