Disposing a double bed

CristianC89 Avatar

I just bought a double bed and was wondering where I could or how I could dispose of the old one.

If I leave it near the rubbish bin, will the people who take the rubbish bags take it?

Or any other suggestions?

What material is the bed made from?. can you not break it up into smaller pieces?

Council do collections.

Take it to the tip.

If its in good condition then stick on freecycle for someone who needs one to collect.

Is it free or do I have to pay? I live in Barnet

Ooooh devastating. And I thought my local council were bad - at least they collect bulky waste for free :|
#6
If it's still in reasonable condition - put it on freecycle or offer it to a charity
#7
Put it on freecycle or do you have a furniture charity shop that would collect.
#8
Some of the charities, who run furniture shops, will collect if it is in resaleable condition. Probably would not take the mattress

Good luck

I found that as well. I bought the new bed frame for 30 pounds. So getting rid of the old one for 50 pounds isn't that convenient for me :(

Some might depending on condition of mattress, any stains would be a straight no.

phone the British Heart Foundation and see if they want it

It must have fire retardant labels or they won't touch it.

Leave it in the street, some drunks will probably ride it home over Christmas and be grateful.

In our area at least,you can take it to the local tip rather than pay the £30 collection fee
#15
If the frame is metal you could look in your local paper for scrap metal collectors. We got our frame collected for free. We rolled our matress and tied it with string and took it to the local tip.

Give it someone as a christmas present

That's what I think I'm going to do, cause it's a rubbish wooden bed frame made out of 2 blocks.
#20
Put it on Gumtree or free cycle
#21
Them charges are extortionate.
If your ok bed has the fire proof labels on red cross will collect it for free.
#22
Some companies can collect your old mattress when they drop off the new one; so it can be cheaper to take advantage of one of those deals than to go via council collection.

Otherwise as everyone says, listing it free is the next best option.

Glad I don't live in Barnet costs 10 pound here and scrap man will collect anything with metal for free.

Ring the council and tell them someone has dumped a bed at end of your street.
