There are several alternatives to using the paid service:
- Use either of our household waste recycling centres in Blackburn or Darwen free of charge. They are open 7 days a week and if you are taking items in a van, we can issue you with a permit that will allow you access to the site.
- Contact your local charity shops if the items are in good condition as local charities collect good quality household items, bric a brac, clothes etc.: East Lancashire Hospice 01254 680520 (They want different things so give them a call to find out). They may pick the items up for you free of charge. Examples are:
- Donate to friends of family, or sell on a car boot. Give away on free cycle or similar websites.
