Furniture Recycling Scheme

For over 35 years St. Paul’s Centre has collected and received donations of furniture from our community. From these collections, we supply hundreds of items of furniture every year to local households, free of charge, or at low cost.  As a separate venture, we also sell furniture in our Friday sale, and through our eBay shop. This helps to fund our essential community work.


We still need donations of furniture and household items

If you wish to donate, there are 2 methods:



  • Clean, unstained beds, mattresses, sofa beds

  • Cots and bunk beds

All of the above require FIRE SAFETY LABELS

  • Clean Single & Double Duvets

  • Wardrobes, sideboards, units

  • Dressers, cabinets, occasional furniture

  • Crockery, ornaments, bric-a-brac

  • Cooking and dining utensils

  • Cycles

  • Garden furniture

  • Desks and office furniture

  • Other household items, bric-a-brac

  • Clean Rugs



  • Bikes

  • Car seats

  • Washing machines, fridges, freezers, cookers*

*See below: 'Waste Disposal’

  • Books

  • Rag waste

  • Carpets

  • General textiles other than single / double duvets

What happens to my donated furniture?

Waste disposal

We operate a bulky waste disposal service on behalf of Cheshire East Council

This is for items that cannot be directly re-used or sold

There is a charge for this service

Furniture referral

Furniture by referral

If you are on low income, unable to afford furniture or white goods, there are several ways in which you can get help.

If you need more than one item, you may need to go to more than one organisation to get everything you need.

Note: We only support people living in Crewe, Nantwich and surrounding areas.

How can St. Paul's Centre help?

If you are receiving support from an organisation (e.g. Social Services, Family Services, Cheshire East Support Teams or similar) they may be able to refer you to us at St Paul’s Centre for help with essential re-used furniture.


  • The only way we can help you is through our referral scheme. This means you will need a referral to be completed by a trusted organisation

  • Furniture through the referral scheme is sold at an affordable, discounted price, which includes free delivery

  • If you are in social housing, contact them to see if you are eligible for financial support through a hardship fund or similar

  • If you need white goods (cooker, fridge etc.), you may be eligible for help from your housing association or a grant-giving organisation
