This service was suspended temporarily in April, May and June 2020 and we now have a large backlog of requests.

We are now taking requests again – however your request may take up to 6 weeks to be collected.

If you already have a collection booked and if you are able to have your items removed before we are able to collect them, please e-mail us to let us know and we will cancel your request.

Before booking a collection, please consider the alternative options below including taking your items to the local tip yourself if you can, particularly smaller items that can fit into a car.

Donate to a Charity
Many charities will collect furniture for free and we have provided a short list below – please contact them directly.

Can you take the items to the household recycling centre yourself?

You no longer need an appointment.  Free permits for large items take only a few minutes to arrange.

If at any point you no longer need your collection, please let us know.
