You can call 01423 500600 to arrange a collection. You may pay using a credit or debit card when you telephone.

If the items are in reasonable condition, you could consider donating them to Essential Needs a small local charity that runs a reuse scheme for people on low incomes or income-based benefits. They can take furniture and white goods, as well as small household items such as bedding, curtains and electrical items.

Many other charities also accept household items such as The British Heart Foundation, Saint Michael's Hospice or Disability Action Yorkshire.

If you are looking to dispose of other non-bulky items further information on the household waste and recycling centres in North Yorkshire is available, please see North Yorkshire County Council's website.
