Important Information About Disposing of Foam Filled Upholstery

Jan 20. 2023

As of January 2023 the Environmental Agency have implemented changes to the way waste textiles and foam upholstered domestic seating must be handled as these waste types often contain Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and other hazardous chemicals. As such these waste types will now need specialist disposal methods.

Therefore, please note that we must now charge for the disposal of foam filled upholstery. To cover the cost of the charge for disposal, as well as the chargeable weight and our handling of the item, we must now charge for disposal of such items. Alternatively, customers may opt to contact their local council, to ascertain charges.

These items include:
-sofa beds
-kitchen and dining room chairs
-stools and foot stools
-home office chairs
-bean bags, floor and sofa cushions

This includes any part made of or containing leather, synthetic leather, other fabric, or foam.

The following items of domestic seating are unlikely to contain POPs:
-items that are not upholstered, for example, a wooden chair without a cushioned or textile back, seat, or arms
