The Used Kitchen Company is urging homeowners planning a kitchen overhaul next year to “do something more positive and eco-friendly with the kitchen they no longer want” with its 'Skip the Skip' campaign.

According to the company – which was named one of Kevin McCloud's 10 Green Heroes of 2017 for this year's Grand Designs Live event – it has prevented around 10,000 tonnes of waste going to landfill by “putting used kitchens on the market and finding them good homes”.

“If you are having a new kitchen in 2018, please don’t just rip out the existing one before exploring the possibilities of finding it a new home,” said Used Kitchen Company managing director and founder Looeeze Grossman.

“Kitchens create a huge amount of waste and loading that into a skip is often totally unnecessary. The UK is running out of landfill sites and kitchen owners can help ease the pressure by doing something productive and pocket-pleasing, if they recycle their kitchen and sell it on.”
