Got an old Billy bookcase or Poang chair to get rid of in your tiny Beacon Hill apartment? Good news: Ikea will take them back, no questions asked.
The Swedish giant will begin a buyback program on November 24 to coincide with what is traditionally Black Friday in the U.S. retail market, Reuters reported.
Furniture will have to be returned fully assembled and will be resold at discount prices; if an item can’t be resold, it will be donated.
IKEA is marketing the move as part of its wider effort to become “a fully circular and climate-positive business by 2030,” according to Reuters. The company has previously been criticized for environmentally unfriendly supply chains.
The growth in popularity of cheap flat-pack furniture over the last decade and a half has also coincided with an increase in furniture waste, or “f-waste,” in landfills, according to Curbed.
