If you have any furniture or electrical appliances which you don’t want or need anymore, we can come and pick them up from outside your home.  We call this a ‘bulky collection’.

Where to leave your items

Leave them outside your home by 7am on the arranged collection day - and no earlier than 24 hours before.  Make sure:

  • they’re dry
  • they’re easy to get at, not behind locked gates or sheds
  • it’s clear what the items are
  • you only leave out the items you’ve arranged to be collected

If you can’t put the items outside, let us know.  We may be able to collect them from inside your home - but you, or another adult, must be present to sign a disclaimer in case of any accidental damage.

Cancel your collection

If you want to cancel your collection and receive a refund please sign in to your My Warrington Account or call Contact Warrington on 01925 443322 before 5pm - two full working days (Mon to Fri) prior to your collection day.

We can’t give you a refund if you call less than two working days before, or if we get there and we can’t collect your items - for example if we can’t get to them or if they’re wet, dirty or stained.

What happens to your items

They’re collected by Changing Lives in Warrington, a charity which gives employment, training and development opportunities to local people.  They reuse and recycle your pre-loved furniture and electrical goods.

Other ways to get rid of large items

Donate to a local charity shop

Some local charities will come and pick up your items for free, and sell them at affordable prices in their community shop. 

Take them to a recycling centre

It’s free to take them to a community recycling centre, but before you go please check what items you can take to each centre, and whether you need a permit.

Give them away online

List them on a recycling website, app or facebook group.

Use a private company

There are other companies who can get rid of items for you.  It’s up to you to make sure they are licensed. Check the register of waste carriers, brokers and dealers on the Environment Agency website.  If someone dumps or flytips your items illegally, you could be prosecuted.

Ask the retailer to dispose of it

If you’ve bought a new electrical item to replace an old one, the company you bought it from must provide a way for you to get rid of the old one, even if you didn’t buy it from them originally. Contact them directly and ask about their ‘take back’ service.
