Donating furniture and electricals
What will we collect?
Crest Co-operative’s team of drivers will collect unwanted furniture and household electrical items from the homes of residents across the Conwy county. Call us on 01492 596 783 to find out more.
Is there a charge for the service?
We offer free collections of good quality items of furniture. Crest Co-operative will visit your home to assess your unwanted item/s. If the item is deemed unsuitable for re-sale, we offer a recycling collection service for a fee. For more information on our recycling fees please call us.
What about electricals?
Crest Co-operative welcome donations of all kinds of electrical items – if we can reuse an electrical item rather than recycle it we’ll see that your pre-loved goods find a new home. We unfortunately have to charge to collect most household electrical items, and they vary. Please call us for more details about the collection of electrical items.
I live in a flat, can you still collect my unwanted items? Yes!
If the driver says the item is unsuitable for re-sale and I do not wish to have my item collected, do I have to pay a call out fee? No – you’re not obliged to pay if you don’t want to.
Where do you collect? We collect along the coast inside of the Conwy County, call us for more details.
How long does it take to arrange a collection?
Please arrange your collection a week to a fortnight in advance. Please call 01492 596783 to arrange your collection.
