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!
Listings typically start to receive offers from collectors within 5 minutes. No response is usually because photos or description are unclear or your pick up time is very challenging (eg. Sun 22:00–00:00 and only listed Sunday afternoon).
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 accept any collector offer, the listing will lapse at the start of your specified collection time slot. You will not be charged and can easily repost, perhaps offering a clearer description or more flexible timeslot?

We interview every waste collector on the LoveJunk platform and verify they are licensed with Environment Agency and have valid insurance to undertake waste collection. 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 provided for your collection. Payment for collection is via LoveJunk which also ensures a secure, clear digital audit trail of your disposal.
Around 1 in 2 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.
