Donate Your Old Sofa to National Charities
Enjoy the satisfaction of a new, comfortable sofa and make the most of it by donating your old sofa to charity. There are many charities, recycling programs, and collaborative projects in the UK that are happy to accept the hugely popular sofas. When you donate your sofa to charity, your furniture will continue to be reused, support another person or family, protect your sofa from landfill and make a valuable donation.
Just make your clear those charities usually sell these sofas to the citizens for fundraising, so they might not accept sofas without the branding labels. Charities that donate sofas to needy people in need welcome sofas without branding labels. Check with the charity first to make sure they can receive it.
Some of the national charities you might consider donating your sofa for are:
British Heart Foundation – This charity has offices across the country and accepts a variety of household goods and furniture, including sofas, chairs and apartments. If your sofa for sale is in good enough shape and the upholstery has the fire label intact, you can successfully donate your sofa to this good cause.
Reuse Network – The Reuse Network supports more than 150 reuse charities in the UK and accepts several household items, including used sofas. There is a recycling center near you where you can donate unwanted sofas quickly and comfortably.
Freecycle – Freecycle is a fast growing network of more than 5,000 groups and more than 9 million members worldwide. This non-profit organization lets you find people near you who need a sofa. Each group is moderated by local volunteers so that your sofa is in safe hands.

Tips to Get Rid of Your Old Sofa
If you can’t donate your sofa to charity, you can also throw your old sofa into local council household and waste recycling centers (HWRC). It is illegal to throw items such as sofas on public or private land. HIPPO continues to fight the appetite of flies in the UK.
Each town council has its own guidelines for receiving and disposing of large items at their center and through appropriate procedures. However, sofas are very common and recycling centers will take your sofa away for free.
