Reduce

To minimise the need to replace joinery, where practical choose good quality pieces that can last you a lifetime. Alternatively you could go with the second-hand option, where you can find some good quality one-of-a-kind pieces

 
Repair

Rather than replacing the item, why not see if it can be repaired.  Check out the Joinery Manufacturers listed in the yellow pages.

 

Reuse

Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your joinery:

  • Refurbish for a new look - sand, paint, replace fabric, new handles etc
  • Cut up for firewood and or kindling
  • Strip it for parts i.e. hinges, handles, screws
  • Turn an old window into a hold frame for your garden
  • Use it to make another piece of furniture (eg turn a bed head board into a coffee table)
  • Donate it
  • On sell

Disposal

If you are unable to repair or reuse the item, the next best practical option is disposal to the regional landfill through your local transfer station.

Where do I dispose of it?
