Book a free pick-up for bulky items

We’ll collect old furniture, mattresses, whitegoods, electronics and other big household items you no longer need.

Project Status: When you need to do this

Pictures of some of the items we collect. The items are a couch, washing machine, tv and computer, mattress, bedframe and rug, barbecue, and bundled garden waste.

Check that your items can be collected

If your items are still in good and working condition, try to find a new home for them first. Find out more about reducing, reusing and repairing.

What can be collected 👍

Choose the right category when booking and separate your items for smooth collection. We partner with specialised recyclers who collect these items separately because each item requires a different recycling process. Separating items means we can recycle more and send less to landfill.

What can’t be collected 👎

Tips to manage booked collections in apartment buildings

Our system allows 1 booking for each item group per apartment building each week. Most apartment buildings arrange for the building manager or a key contact to book 1 pick-up on behalf of all residents.  

Where does it all go?

We recycle what we can and safely dispose of the rest.

  • Mattresses are sent to our contractor, who recycles up to 75% of mattress parts. Steel springs are recycled into products like metal roofing. Foam is turned into carpet underlay. Timber can become weed matting and mulch. Textiles are used in products like acoustic panelling.
  • Furniture and bulky household items are collected and taken to a transfer station where metals and plastics are removed for recycling. Furniture that can’t be recycled is downcycled into fuel for cement kilns. If your items are still in good, working condition, try to find a new home for them first.
  • Whitegoods are usually made of valuable metals and plastics. Our processors first remove any hazardous chemicals or heavy metals. Whitegoods are then crushed and shredded for recycling. Recovered materials like copper, steel and plastics can be turned into new metal and plastic products.
  • Metals like aluminium or steel from common appliances are 100% recyclable and can be recycled over and over again. Metals are melted down to be reused in new production.
  • Electronics are sorted and broken down into parts for recycling, such as metals, plastics, circuit boards, glass and more. Some electronics are repaired or refurbished, with data wiping, before being resold.
