Disposing of your old sofa

What should I do with my old sofa?

After you've placed your House of Fraser - Sofas, Furniture and Flooring order, you're probably wondering how to dispose of your old sofa to make way for a brand new one. We will give you an estimated delivery date when you place your order, but in the meantime you can find out all the information you need about disposing of your old sofa below.

Rehome your old sofa

If your old sofa is still in good condition, why not help out someone less fortunate than you or give it a new home by recycling in the follow ways:

The Furniture Re-Use Network helps vulnerable people through distributing unwanted furniture at affordable prices and reduces landfill waste. Recycling your old furniture is quick and easy; advertise it online on sites such as Gumtree, or even in your local newspaper.

Old sofa removal

Unfortunately we do not offer sofa removal as part of our delivery service, but we do work closely with the British Heart Foundation, who by simply donating your sofa can raise vital funds for their research.

You can arrange a furniture collection online and a member of their team will contact you within 72 hours to confirm a date and time best suited to you to collect your old sofa. If you prefer, you can also call into your local British Heart Foundation store where a member of staff will be happy to help. Please ensure your sofa is still in good condition and fire safety labels are still intact, so your old sofa can be placed on sale right away.


Alternatively, you can also arrange for your local council to collect for your old sofa for a small fee, by simply visiting the Government website and checking availability of large waste item collection in your area.

You can also dispose of your old sofa by taking it to your local council's household and waste recycling centre. It's essential that you dispose of your old sofa properly as it is illegal to dump waste items such as sofas, on public or private grounds, and in doing so you could incur fines up to £5,000.
