We’ve partnered with Ipswich Furniture Project to provide a collection service within Ipswich for large electrical items.
Household electrical items larger than a microwave are collected free of charge, regardless of condition.
There are several options available if you have unwanted items that are still in good condition.
See Re-using large items for more information.
