    I've used them several times for colleting large items. My local one is very good as they collect at agreed times and theyre cheaper than disposal vis the local authority

    They refused to take a couple of sideboards which were in very good condition, but they picked up a box of LPs and quickly loaded them on the van, I said to driver if they didn't take the sideboards bring the LPs back, in no time at all the sideboards were loaded on the van , everybody happy :D

    The guys who collected our old leather suite were really arsy - suite had some scuffs and they really didn't want to take it. Did they think we'd be throwing it away if it was good as new? Apparently it sold for £350.

    It's a common misconception that charities are run differently from other business'.

    Apart from some tax breaks they have to compete in the same way as other retail operators and their staff are under the same pressures, even the volunteers in some cases.
