Furniture Mine is part of Emmaus Potteries, the local branch of the international charity Emmaus.  It focuses on helping homeless people rebuild their lives through meaningful work, training, community solidarity and social enterprise.  Each local branch creates a self-supporting community based around the retail enterprise of furniture recycling, white goods refurbishment and up-cycling.  To increase the number of items that can be reused, collections are made from inside your property so they aren’t damaged by the weather.  

If your furniture can be reused it will be collected for free for more information visit the Emmaus Potteries Furniture Mine website .

Reusable and reconditioned items are available in two local shops, which are open Monday to Thursday 9am - 5pm, Friday 9am - 4.30pm and Saturday 10am - 2pm:

  • Bridge Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme ST5 2RY
  • Cannon Place, Hanley ST1 4QA (main showroom)

There’ll be a charge for all items which can’t be reused as they will need to be recycled.

One to three items: £35
Four to six items: £55
Seven to nine items: £70
Ten items or more: £10 per item
