The best way to find out how much it will likely cost you is to create a listing and see what quotes you get back from collectors and reusers to remove it. There's no charge or obligation to do so. FYI, cost of removal depends on the condition, amount and type of junk, ease of loading and urgency. Collections by Junk Reusersare Free of Charge. Collections by Waste Collectors are chargeable.

Yes. There is no charge or comittment to create a listing and receive offers from waste collectors and junk reusers. You can cancel your listing any time if you don't accept an offer. So, if you just want to check prices, then cancel…no problem!
You normally start to receive offers from collectors within a few minutes of creating your listing. No response is usually because your photos or description are unclear, your pick up time is very challenging (eg. Sun 22:00–00:00 and only listed Sunday afternoon), or you created your listing in the middle of the night!
You can cancel your listing any time before you accept a collector offer. If you need to rearrange a collection after this, please contact your collector directly. Under our Terms, you can be charged a wasted journey fee (£20) if you cancel a collection once a collector is already on their way or at site.
If you don't choose one of the collector quotes (or reuser offers), the listing will lapse at the start of your specified collection time slot (or after 7 days if you chose an 'Anytime' or 'ASAP' collection). You will not be charged and can easily repost, perhaps offering a clearer description or more flexible timeslot?
The price includes VAT if the waste collector is VAT registered. Many collectors on LoveJunk are VAT registered, so the offer price will often include VAT and can be reclaimed if you are VAT registered. If applicable, VAT shows in the Collector offer and the final receipt.
We interview every waste collector on the LoveJunk platform and verify they are licensed with Environment Agency (or Scottish Environment Agency) and have valid insurance to undertake waste collections. In addition, we undertake identity checks, including bank account and proof of address and verify that the disposal sites they use are fully accredited. Collector license number and disposal site permit number are detailed in the waste documentatation you receive after your collection. Payment for collection is by card via LoveJunk which also ensures a secure, clear digital audit trail of your disposal.
Around 1 in 3 of LoveJunk listings marked as potentially 'reusable' by customers end up being reused, instead of being destroyed. On average 98% of all junk collected via the platform avoids landfill. Exact recycling % depends on your junk and the disposal facility used by your collector and is shown on the waste documentation provided after your collection.
