Disposal of items we can't reuse

Beating Furniture Poverty
Throughout Essex

Tendring Reuse and Employment Enterprise (T.R.E.E.) is a charity that provides volunteer and work placement opportunities for people in the local community. We specialise in those with learning difficulties, the long term unemployed and young people not in education, employment or training (NEET).

We create work and training opportunities through the collection, testing and sale of donated second hand furniture, washers, driers, cookers fridges, freezers and a whole range of other large electrical appliances.  You can make a real difference by donating furniture to our charity.

Our team are out collecting and delivering across North Essex.

Team TREE loading bulky items“Well done for a very efficient collection of furniture from our daughters home today.  The two men who came were polite and good natured (fortunate as they were bulky items and it was awkward). They didn’t make a fuss but effectively assessed the problem and the options and got on with it. How refreshing to get this quality of service. They are a credit to your organisation, thank you.”   Helen P, Notley




We accept and collect good quality donated furniture and electrical items for reuse; and recycle what cannot be reused.

Donate some furniture to our charity today

Refurbished quality items are then sold at low cost to the general public, particularly benefiting those who are disadvantaged. In turn this has multiple benefits on the community, including reducing social and financial exclusion and lowering carbon emissions and landfill.

Working across Essex, we sell second hand furniture and appliances in Clacton-on-Sea, Braintree and Chelmsford & we collect items from further afield too.  Contact us today to donate an item of furniture to the charity.  TREE is a Chelmsford Furniture Project, a Tendring Furniture Scheme and a Braintree Charity Shop.
