Sofa Removal in the UK

A study revealed that more than 1.6 million tonnes of bulky waste are dumped in the UK each year, and more than 40% of this is furniture. Sofas and armchairs top the list of more than 200,000 tonnes thrown away. The average household changes their sofa every 11 years. Therefore, finding the most appropriate rubbish clearance service for removing the sofa is important – both for the environment and for your wallet. We’ll walk you through options covering sofa reuse networks, community services, and various commercial options detailing gross and environmental costs issues.

Sofas come in a variety of shapes and sizes – sofas, couches, armchairs (or three-piece suites), lazy children, to name a few, and sofas can range from a small single armchair to a large modern corner sofa.

Sofa removal can be frustrating because of its size as it can’t be thrown with your trash collection. Council sofa collections are usually set aside (and increasingly billed), which can take weeks to set up, while reusable nets are sometimes unreliable and can include strangers entering your home. Renting vans and tipping on-site can be time-consuming (and busy on weekends/holidays), and commercial collectors are costly even if it’s convenient.

Cheaper options are available at places like Facebook, but the problems with Facebook’s garbage truck reported in The Telegraph are a constant risk and, like a sofa maker, your responsibility is to get rid of them. An LGA spokesman was quoted as saying in a Telegraph article as saying, “Petty criminals are trying to undermine legal services by offering to dispose of household waste cheaply.” However, often, they just throw objects in unfamiliar places or in public places. People should not use this service because they are the source of the problem.

The legal requirement is to implement a waste hierarchy where economically possible. The aim is to bring more sofas into the waste hierarchy and thereby reduce their impact on the environment.

Reduce and reuse

This includes initiatives to extend the life of furniture, possibly through repairing, cleaning, and reusing items where possible. It is estimated that about 20% of today’s sofas are reused in some form, with most of the others often ending up in landfills.
