Disposal of unwanted furniture
Wherever possible, please re-use any furniture you need to dispose of using the following hierarchy:
The furniture store & obtaining used furniture
All unwanted furniture is now returned to the furniture store and items are available for staff to re-use free of charge*.
There is a wide range of furniture that is available, though this varies on a daily basis as items come into the store and/or are removed for re-use across the campus - watch the videos to the right to see how the recycling process works and what a member of staff thinks of the service.
Staff are now able to visit the furniture store on a daily basis (M - F) between 1 & 3pm. The contact at the store between 1 & 3pm is Alan Wright (tel: 07584 141009).
Items that are assessed at the furniture store as not being suitable for re-use will be disposed of to a local furniture re-use company Upmcr rather than sent for disposal
* we are now able to deliver the majority of items free of charge during the hours of 12 & 1pm Monday - Friday. Where large items or large numbers of items are involved, we will arrange for a quote from one of the University's removal contractors for delivery, but these costs must be picked up by the customer who will need to raise a Purchase Order for the contractor.
