How Harrogate sofa collection works
Firstly, apply for a free no obligation quote for sofa collection in Harrogate. Let us know the type, size, and number of sofas you want collecting, where from, and when. We’ll provide a tailored quote with fixed prices and book a removal time and date that slots in with your schedule.
One of our purple vans and a couple of our professional team will come out on the day. They’ll lift, carry, and load the sofa into the van, saving you the effort. For any extra-large sofas that need more than two people please let us know in advance so we can send out an extra team member.
Your old sofa will then be taken to a waste transfer station in North Yorkshire. Here it’s checked and its future decided. Any sofas in decent condition might be donated to a local cause, while those beyond repair will be sent for recycling (broken down and materials recycled individually). Any sofas that contain POPs are sent for controlled incineration.

Local recycling centres and charities in Harrogate
You can dispose of furniture from your home for free at the two main household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Harrogate – Harrogate HWRC and West Harrogate HWRC. Only residents of Harrogate can use these sites to get rid of domestic waste. There’s no need to register unless using a commercial vehicle (like a van).
Businesses can only take sofas that are commercial waste to West Harrogate HWRC. You must be a licensed waste carrier and register your vehicle to use the site.
Harrogate Borough Council offers a collection service for bulky items of furniture, including sofas. Charges apply of £46.75 per two items. If you need any more items removed you must book an extra collection. Collection time and dates are scheduled based on your address and they won’t remove sofas from inside a property so you must lift them out.
Donate sofas to Harrogate charities
Any sofas that are still in usable condition could be donated to a local charity in Harrogate rather than recycled. This saves on the energy used to recycle sofas and helps support a good cause benefiting people in the town.
Some Harrogate charities provide free collection services to make sofa removal simple, while there are also online services you can use to get rid of an old service in Harrogate. These include:

POPs waste and sofa disposal in Harrogate
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are poisonous chemical substances and unfortunately, some sofas contain them. They take a long time to break down if left in landfill and exposure can harm human health and the environment. For this reason, the Environmental Agency updated guidelines to ensure any sofas containing POPs are destroyed.
At Divert we check all sofas we collect in Harrogate. If they contain POPs then they’re sent for controlled incineration to ensure they’re disposed of safely and legally in line with government regulations. This prevents Harrogate sofa disposal from harming the local environment. Speak to our team if you want more information and advice about whether your old sofa contains POPs.
