More often than not, someone else can make good use of the items you want to get rid of. We want to match up the people with things to pass on with those who'd be glad to have them. This is how you can do it:
Donate to Charity
The quickest way is to contact one of the following organisations who collect items free of charge and often within a week if they're in a reasonable condition and in working order. Soft furniture (sofas, mattresses etc) need to have a fire label and no stains or rips.
Please contact them on:
Please take your smaller unwanted items such as CDs and books to your local charity shop.
For more information about what these groups accept, please see the Pass It On leaflet (PDF 1.2MB).
Revive Leeds Reuse Shop, Seacroft - 0113 273 1791
You can also take your items to the Revive Leeds re-use shop at the Seacroft household waste recycling site. Items will be sold and the money will be used to benefit local charities helping the homeless, disadvantaged and disabled people in Leeds. The shop accepts donations of furniture, clothing, bikes, books, DVDs and CDs, bric-a-brac and much more.
Household Waste Recycling Sites
You can take unwanted items to Recycling Sites. Re-use containers are available to place items for donation to local charities, and for recycling or disposal of broken or damaged items. The sites are open 7 days a week. The sites only close on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. Please visit the Recycling sites page to check opening times before you set off.
If you cannot remove your items as above and are prepared to wait for up to 6 weeks, we offer a limited service to remove items from domestic properties. If required, please book this service online. Please note that we only take items listed below and you can only have 3 collections in a 12 month period. If there are no slots available then you will need to try again in a few days’ time or dispose of the items yourself. Calling us will be of no help as we can only see the same appointments as you.
If you have already made a booking and want to check when it is, amend it, or cancel it then please follow the instructions on our Amending or cancelling your unwanted items collection page.
Please leave your bulky waste outside for collection for a further 48 hours if it is not collected on the booked date. Important: please ensure that your item/s are left in the location given during your booking.
For more details on the service provided and items that we don't collect, please see the following sections.
