Where can I throw away my old furniture

Post by mois_2012 » Fri Nov 26, 2021 10:47 am

Hi

1. Is there any dumping place in Helsinki/Espoo/Vantaa where I can dump my old furniture? or
2. Is there any old stuff station/company or such that will pick up all of my old furniture (whether recyclable or not) for a cheap price?

It would be great if someone can let me know. Thank you

Fida can collect them for you if they're still working and clean, for resale, no profit for you of course.

In addition to Fida, Red Cross has Kontti shops where they sell second hand furniture and they can collect the items from your home. However, neither one can take broken stuff, the furniture need to be clean and assembled. In short, sellable. I had to empty one house and noticed they did not take sofas easily. Kontti pages are mostly in Finnish but you can call them. Their staff is mostly international, and speak all kinds of languages...

Helsinki shop is in Itäkeskus.

Vantaa shop does not take big furniture.

The rest which you cannot sell/give needs to go to the Sortti recycling points. But there you pay for it, though not much. I had half van all sort of stuff and paid e25.
