Before asking us to collect your old items which will be sent for energy recovery, it may be suitable to donate the item to a charity. More details can be found on our Furniture re-use page.

Alternatively, you could ask the supplier if they provide a service to remove and dispose of the old item. If they don’t, another option would be to take them to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.

All large bulky household items need to be left outside your property where it is easy to gain access for their removal.
