Household waste is usually a whole lot easier to dispose of than business waste since for most items the local council will simply take care of it for you.

But some items are more difficult than others. In most areas, if it doesn’t fit in the bin, then the chances are you’re going to have to think more creatively about getting rid of it. Furniture disposal in London is one such case.

There are certainly a lot of people out there looking for cheap and convenient old furniture collection. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to go about getting rid of your sofas and freezers without paying through the roof.

Here’s what you need to know to save money and get the most out of your old scrap.

Rule One: Don’t flytip!

The first rule of getting rid of your old furniture is –make sure it goes to a good place.

Dumping it in the canal or motorway might seem easy, but you’ll be doing untold harm to the environment if you flytip, costing the taxpayer, and risking up to £20,000 in fines.

Don’t risk it. Make sure your old furniture goes either to a new home or is responsibly disposed of by waste collection professionals.

Reuse or donate your old furniture

The quickest, easiest and cheapest way to get rid of your old furniture is to find somebody who’ll happily take it off your hands for free. Of course, this isn’t always easy. It’ll have to be in good enough condition that somebody will want it, and the old furniture itself will have to be easy enough to organise. Having a large enough vehicle to transport the old mattress or fridge freezer will certainly help with this.

Despite this – if you can find somebody who’ll happily take scrap items off your hands, there’s a good chance you can save money on your furniture disposal in Epsom, London.
