I am having to get rid fo loads of fruniture because we are moving to a much smaller house. A charity cam and filled up their truck with stuff but wouldn't take the sofa because the cat had scratched it on the side - not hideously - just a bit. It makes me sad that I have to take it to the tip because a chairty won't take it when I wouldn't be getting rid of it if it wasn't for the fact that I am moving

Why don't you put it on freecycle? It might go to a good home instead of going to the tip??

Because I don't have the time to deal with time wasters! I sat in for three hours waiting for the charity

Oh that's pants :(... I know at our local tip they will take good stuff and sell it there.. maybe they can do that? instead of it going in the tip :( seems such a shame to waste it

Do you have a local FB selling group you could offer it free on? Worth a try, I usually add a deadline for collection then it's tough if people don't turn up.

I've got rid of 4 bits of furniture and a sofa on my local FB selling page recently, all went within 24 hours. I just say it has to be gone by a certain time and first to arrive gets it. So much easier than the tip and I love that the stuff is living on and doing someone else a turn instead of going to landfill.

Definitely try a local FB selling page. They are like a plague of locusts on the ones I'm on.
