Fashion is not about just the new but it’s the essence of combining the old and the new to create something unique. We at I like to move it removals do not believe in wasting. We are all about repurposing and recycling.

The truth is we live in a world that is practically making things for landfills and we believe we can stop that. By creating this guide to make our customers understand the importance of reusing, we will help them understand how to repurpose and recycle your furniture here in London.

Repurposing and Recycling furniture in London

Networks to look up

Fortunately, in London, almost every borough contains a recycling center. You can find them easily enough by looking up your local civic amenity center. Some of these areas also allow you to leave stuff you no longer use for others to find and pick up.

In case you are looking for or selling your furniture online, you can do that on Gumtree or eBay. The buyer will collect it from your home without you having to transport it anywhere. If you use Freecycle or Freegle you can donate your stuff for free

How to repurpose

LoveJunk is a site where you can repurpose your furniture along with many other things. This site has an incredible 98% rate of actually refraining from landfilling. The site allows you to repurpose all kinds of things efficiently and purposefully. You can put your furniture up here for others to find.

On the other hand, if you are looking for something, the site can help you find all kinds of pre-loved items to give a home again.


Pro-planets have been spearheading recycling for a good many years. With so many old clothing banks and furniture stores, you can find many areas to give away your old things like your furniture. The British Heart Foundation even has an online collection system where you can donate these old items.

All you have to do is to type your postcode in and see what type of options are available for you.


Upcycling is when you enhance the creativity of an item to give it a new life. You can always consider upcycling your furniture, perhaps by changing the polish, to giving it a new colored upholstery to give it a new life. Many people and even fashion designers choose to revamp these old pieces and create something entirely new out of them. This can also be a cost-effective way to DIY some projects for your home.

Vintage furniture is one such example of a keyword that has been trending on google for some time. You can see that the demand for old furniture is there. Some people can repurpose these old pieces and resell them, creating some profit along the way.

Let’s reduce

A great way to lower our impact through landfills is to reduce waste. When we talk about lowering waste we mean by reducing our consumption. All we need is a mindset change to bring this positivity about and I like to move its removals and endorse this change!
