  • All you have to do to get a quote is give us a call or send us pictures of your sofa and any other waste you would like us to collect via WhatsApp or SMS – you sit back, and we will do the rest!

Will the Plymouth City Council remove my sofa?

Using their bulky waste collection service, you can always get a quote from Plymouth City Council to see if they’re willing to take away your sofa, which usually costs around £50. It’s worth visiting their offers before committing, as sometimes private waste removal services are more reliable and cost-effective. The choice is up to you in the end!

Disposal Money Saving Tips:

We have a couple of tips when it comes to disposing of a settee:

– Sell it online – there are many sites where you can sell second-hand furniture.

If your settee is in a reasonable condition, you could sell it.
Many that have just moved out or starting a family could be looking to save a bit of money. Your old used sofa could be a lifesaver.
If your couch still has life, let someone else use it before it ends up at the landfill.
If you think this is an option, check out E-Bay, Gumtree, Preloved, Shpock and Facebook.

– Freebie it online – there are many sites where you can list things for free.

  • If the condition of your sofa isn’t that great, all is not lost.
  • Another’s trash can still be someone else’s treasure.
  • You may even find that paying some of the transport fees to give it away will save you money in the long run.
  • If you think this is an option, check out the freebie categories on Freecycle, Upcycle, Preloved, Gumtree and Facebook.

Donate it to a local charity shop – they will be able to sell it on, and the money raised will go to a good cause.

  • You can only do this if the sofa is in a reasonable condition; the charity will need to be able to sell it. Contrary to popular belief, charities don’t just take any old rubbish.
  • The fire label must also be on your sofa. A charity cannot sell it if this isn’t there. So, even if the sofa is in excellent shape, charities cannot accept it.
  • We have some great local charities in Plymouth that will come and collect a settee for free, saving you the removal costs, providing it’s in good condition and has that fire label I mentioned.
  • For Plymouth-based charities, please check St Luke’s Hospice or the British Heart Foundation.

Take it to your local recycling centre – if you can get it there.

  • Before heading to a recycling centre in Plymouth in a van, ensure that they will allow van access; this varies by location. You may find that they only allow car access.
  • In most cases, they will only allow cars; the good news is that many modern sofas may be disassembled with simple tools, allowing you to transport it to a recycling facility in smaller pieces.
  • DO NOT use power tools to dismantle your sofa; this can be extremely dangerous due to hidden metal components and wires, resulting in a trip to Derriford Hospital.
