Arrange a collection

When we make collections:

  • Adur District: Tuesdays and Thursdays

We cannot arrange an immediate collection, but during the booking process we will offer you a choice of collection dates up to 6 weeks in advance. This is based on the maximum collections possible on each day.

The form below allows you to specify what you want collecting, and then gives a tailored price based on what you select:

Other ways to get rid of large items

Remember if your unwanted item is in good condition it could be donated to charity, or sold on a resale site such as eBay or Gumtree.

Items that cannot be donated can be disposed of for free at the tip.

If you have many items to dispose of it may be easier and more cost-effective to use a reputable skip hire company.

Please do not leave items out if you haven't arranged a collection. This is fly-tipping and is illegal.
