YES it is true sometimes certain items can be taken FREE if they are in working order - an example of this are fridges / freezers / cookers if they are less than 20 years old!
Why 20 years because many items that are older than this have different gas restrictions which are not allowed in the current legislation and can only be taken if done by the local council. A mute point as waste carriers can be fined heavily if caught with these items where as the council have no such restriction.
With many things that are thrown away today the popularity or interest of lets say furniture is all down to the current fads in our society but generally because you can by mass produced furniture so cheaply from a certain big Swedish company
So what happens - if you dont get past the reject system of the British Heart Foudation (a worthy cause) then companies like A4 Ezy can clear your rubbish and furniture for a cost of disposal and the work carried out
Remember all Sofas and Armchair / Mattresses need fire certificates to be sold it may still look good but is useless without them.
