How to dispose of a sofa
Most people don’t have a car or a van big enough to dispose of their own sofa, so you’re going to need some help.
You’ve a number of options available. The council offer a bulky waste collection service that means they can come and pick up the sofa, and it’s fairly cheap too. However, you have to then wait for potentially weeks for the sofa to be collected. You also need to leave it outdoors from 7am on the day of collection, which isn’t easy for everyone. And it should be sheltered too, otherwise rainy weather can cause the sofa to get soaked, and councils will often refuse to pick up items that are sodden due to them being too heavy.
So, if you want a sofa removed quickly and you want to be sure it’ll definitely go, then you should consider either a rubbish clearance service or a skip – both of which we can offer.
It’s best to come to a reputable company such as TW Services for home rubbish clearance rather than a ‘man with a van’ – independent people you find on social media are usually unlicensed and could dump your rubbish anywhere. If they’re caught fly-tipping it’ll be you that has to pay a fine as well.
So instead, opt for our safe, convenient service. We’ll arrive on the arranged day ready to take your sofa for responsible disposal along with any other waste you want rid of. We’ll even help you load it.
If you’re planning a big clear out alongside the sofa and want more time, then instead book a skip with us. We’ll deliver the skip to your chosen safe place where you can keep it for a few days, loading it with your sofa and anything else you want removed from your home, at your convenience. Once it’s full, we’ll come and collect it for you. Simple.
