We will collect all electrical appliances larger than a small microwave oven from domestic properties only. Where possible, you should try to make sure any working appliance you no longer want is reused. Items can be advertised on Freegle, taken to, or collected, free of charge, by charities. For details of this and how to dispose of old and broken items, please see below.
