Bulky & Large Collections

 

Freecycle

Freecycle is a website for people who want to exchange or give away goods, rather than throw them away. One of the great things about it is that everything is free! Freecycle is a non-profit organisation working to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by reusing good quality items. Whether you've got an old sofa, toys or clothes, if you register you can swap almost anything that you no longer need for things that you do. It saves you money and also helps the environment by enabling you to reuse rather than throw away. There's a site for Littlehampton and one for Bognor Regis

 

Other reuse organisations 

Social networking sites are becoming more and more popular and are great places to advertise your unwanted items. Facebook groups exist where members advertise items for sale or that are free to a good home. Alternately if you have unwanted items why not just post a picture on your wall for your friends to see.

 

Charity shops

By donating to your local charity shop, you will not only be reducing the amount of waste going to landfill but you will be supporting a good cause of your choice. You can either search for your nearest charity shop or visit your local high street.

 

Collections

Large or bulky items such as fridges and furniture will not be taken as part of the weekly rubbish collection. You can take them to your local household waste recycling centre for free, or you can arrange a special collection through our contractors, Biffa. Please see the table below for the current charges. To arrange a collection please contact Biffa directly on 01903 734520. You could also use a registered waste carrier, a list of which is provided by the Environment Agency.
