Britain's 'disposable' culture often means that perfectly good items end up in landfill. Virtually all of Britain's old furniture ends up at the rubbish tip when it is replaced, says a leading waste disposal and recycling company. According to BusinessWaste.co.uk, 90% of discarded furniture is earmarked for destruction, with barely any being reused. Of the remaining ten per cent, 7% is sold onwards, 2% is given to friends or family members and 1% is donated to furniture charities.
