How to get rid of old sofa for free

If you have an old sofa that you want to get rid of, you might be wondering how to do it without spending any money. After all, sofas are bulky and heavy, and not easy to move around. Luckily, there are some options that you can try to dispose of your old sofa for free.

One option is to apply for a special collection of large waste items from your local council. Most councils will collect things like old sofas, fridges or washing machines for a fee, but some might offer free collections for certain items or under certain conditions. You can check the availability and eligibility of this service on the GOV.UK website.

Another option is to donate your old sofa to a charity that will pick it up for free. There are many charities that accept furniture donations, such as British Heart Foundation, Salvation Army, Sue Ryder, and more. You can find a list of charities that offer free furniture donation pickup on this website⁵. However, you should make sure that your sofa is in good condition and meets the safety standards before donating it.

A third option is to give away your old sofa to someone who needs it. You can try local "Buy Nothing" groups in your area, where people exchange goods and services for free. You can also post your offer on online platforms like Freecycle.org³, Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist. You might be surprised by how many people are looking for a free sofa.

However, if none of these options work for you, or if you want a hassle-free and reliable way to get rid of your old sofa, you can always use a professional sofa removal service. One such service is JunkCare, which offers sofa collection starting from £80. JunkCare will send a two-person team to collect your sofa from indoors or outdoors, and dispose of it responsibly. We will also recycle as much of the materials and components as possible, and plant trees to offset the carbon emissions of collection. You can book your sofa collection online or by phone, and choose a convenient time slot for you. JunkCare is a licensed and insured waste carrier, and has excellent customer reviews. You can find out more about our sofa removal service on our website.

So, whether you want to get rid of your old sofa for free or for a reasonable fee, there are plenty of options to choose from. Just make sure that you do it in a safe and eco-friendly way, and enjoy your new sofa!
