Good quality used furniture...
We support Furniture Donation Network, a community dotcom project that aims to make it easy for people across the UK to reuse and recycle good quality used furniture, while helping out UK charities!
If you want to recycle your good quality used furniture, why not log on to the Furniture Donation Network website and choose a collection time? Collections are free of charge and your items will find a new home with someone who otherwise might not be able to afford to furnish their home.
Battered and bruised used furniture...
If you've got furniture items that are a little bit more 'well loved' - and perhaps a bit battered or bruised (or completely trashed!) - you should try the Bulky Waste collection service!
For a small fee - which helps to fund the service and benefit UK charities - the Bulky Waste team will come and pick your items up from your doorstep. Bulky Waste guarantees collection of your unwanted items, regardless of their condition, so you can just book a collection and relax! Some of the items may be able to be restored, but the team will recycle as many of the other items as possible instead of sending them straight to landfill, like many other collection services.
Scrapping a Car
If your vehicle is old, failed its MOT and beyond economic repair, or written off due to an accident it scrapping your car may be the only option.
Scrap Car Network offers free collection of your car throughout the UK mainland through a comprehensive network of licensed ATFs. In addition to a great price for your Scrap Car, the profits raised by Scrap Car Network sustain a charity which is helping bring an end to homelessness.
Cleaning up the garden, doing a spring clean or need a skip for your business, whatever your requirements Skip Hire Network offer a variety of skips to meet your requirements.
