Shifting an old sofa in Bradford can be tricky due to its size and the fact you can’t simply throw it out with your regular household waste. At Divert we provide sofa removal in Bradford for homes, offices, and businesses. We divert each one away from landfill and ensure responsible disposal. Sofa removal in Bradford is available for two and three-seater sofas, corner sofas, sofa beds, a chaise longue, and recliner sofas.

We can collect your old sofa from anywhere across the Bradford district and ensure responsible disposal, recycling, and reuse – whatever its condition. This includes sending sofas containing persistent organic pollutants (POPs) for incineration in line with environmental guidelines.

How sofa collection in Bradford works

Start with a free quote for your specific sofa collection needs in Bradford. Tell us the type, size, and number of sofas you need collecting, where from, and when. If you’re happy with the price, we’ll then book a collection slot that suits your schedule.

On the day one of our purple vans with a couple of our team will come to your home or business anywhere in Bradford. They’ll do all the lifting and shifting, so you don’t need to worry about straining yourself. Let us know if you’ve got a sofa that needs more than two pairs of hands to move, so we can plan accordingly.

They’ll then drive the sofa to a nearby waste transfer station in Bradford. It’ll be checked, and then what happens next depends on its condition and type. Any usable sofa may be donated to a local charity or cause, those containing POPs will be sent for controlled incineration, while those that don’t contain POPs may be recycled.

Local recycling centres and charities in Bradford

Bradford residents can take an old sofa from their home to one of the eight household waste recycling centres (HWRCs). Limits apply and households can only dispose of up to two sofas, chairs, or other seating per year at any HWRC in Bradford. You need a resident permit to visit in a car, or a van permit in a van, pickup, or with a trailer.

Sofas from a commercial setting can only be taken to the two waste transfer stations in Bowling Back Lane and Keighley. Licensed waste carriers must transport them to either site for disposal. Charges apply of £309 per tonne with a minimum charge of £30.90 and they must not be mixed with other waste types.

Bradford Council also offer a bulky waste collection service that can remove sofas from residents of the district. There’s a charge for the service of £20 for up to five items. Sofas can only be collected between Tuesday to Friday, 6am to 5pm. The day and time depend on your postcode.

POPs waste and sofa disposal in Bradford

Some sofas contain persistent organic pollutants (POPs). These are poisonous chemical substances that take a long time to break down and can harm human health and the environment. Environmental Agency guidelines state that such waste must be destroyed – it can’t be recycled or reused. All old sofas we collect in Bradford are checked to see whether they contain POPs. Any that do are sent for incineration and safe disposal in line with Environment Agency regulations. We can remove any type of sofa, whether it contains POPs or not, and provide advice if you want more information.

Donate sofas to Bradford charities

Many Bradford charities accept donations of old sofas to resell to support their cause or to donate to those in need. It’s a sustainable option that reduces the amount of energy and fuel needed to transport and recycle sofas. Plus, you’ll support a worthy cause in the process. 

Some organisations offer a free collection service for bulky items, including sofas. There are also online services where you can offer your old sofa for free to others in Bradford. A few places where you can donate or get rid of a sofa for free in Bradford include:

  • British Heart Foundation – a free collection service is available for bulky items including sofas that are sold in the BHF furniture and electrical store in Bradford.
  • Keighley Furniture Project – furniture including sofas in most conditions accepted (with a free collection service) for reuse, upcycling, and recycling in the Keighley and Skipton area.
  • Newlands Furniture Service – offers a collection service for large items such as sofas from households within 15 miles.
  • RSPCA – the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District Branch offers free collections of sofas for resale in 10 shops across the region.
  • Scraptastic – a scrap store in Shipley that accepts all sorts of items. Send a photo of your old sofa first and they’ll let you know if they can use it.
  • Freecycle and Freegle – list sofas for free to local Bradford residents, and determine whether collection is required to save you the hassle of transporting it.
