Local residents looking to make space over the festive period to have a less cluttered New Year can have bulky furniture items collected for free through the National Re-use Phone Line.

The free service, managed by Zero Waste Scotland, collects unwanted items such as wardrobes, chests of drawers, sideboards, tables, sofas and beds that are in re-usable condition and takes them away to be used again.

It’s a hassle-free way to move items on that you no longer want in a way that’s good for both planet and pocket.

The service also ensures items in good condition go on to have a longer life, which reduces their impact on the environment.

Residents can simply call 0800 0665 820 to pass their items on.

Items are collected by local re-use organisations which sell the furniture to support good causes. The phone line is open from 9am to 5pm and you can donate online at any time at www.reusephoneline.com.
