What is POPs waste?

POPs stands for persistent organic pollutants and new legislation states that certain items of furniture such as sofas must now be incinerated.


POPs are concerning as they take a long time to degrade and if buried can have a negative impact on the environment.


The waste sector has reacted to this new development namely by making the disposal of POPs waste more expensive. As such we have chosen to create our own furniture recycling facility so we can continue to provide a responsible service at an affordable price.

Our furniture recycling process

Furniture processing

Our initial warehouse we purchased was in Birmingham and we quickly set to work laying the groundwork to create our own waste furniture processing facility. The goal was to create a facility that could process POPs waste efficiently and in compliance with the new POPs legislation.


Our shredding line can quickly dismantle furniture and separate its materials into manageable piles. Raw materials such as wood and metal can be reclaimed to prevent as many materials from being wasted as possible.


Capacity to process hundreds of furniture daily

The result

Once shredded we can sort out what materials can be kept to be recycled and what items such as materials containing POPs need to be transported elsewhere to be incinerated.


Parts of our fleet can operate to and from this location and it also houses our administrative, operational and customer support staff. As such this facility serves as the base of operations in the Midlands area.

Reducing our carbon

Our very own recycling facility

The planet and the environment have always been at the forefront of the Clearabee business and will continue to play a huge part.


From our carbon offsetting projects to ambitious new initiatives involving our own waste processing facilities, we’re committed to handling waste responsibly.


One of our larger efforts to become a carbon-neutral company is through our Clearabee forests. Collectively, we have planted over 43,000 trees at multiple sites across the UK.


As well as offsetting the carbon we emit, we strive to reduce what we output in the first place.


Our van teams are stationed across the country which allows us to make short and efficient journeys to our rubbish collection jobs and then to local waste transfer stations.


Live commissioning from January 2023 with permit issuance.


Capacity for 1 million items of furniture per year.


We keep a close eye on changing legislation to always be compliant

Frequently asked questions

Furniture removal & recycling FAQ's

Here are a few frequently asked questions we receive regarding furniture collection, recycling and disposal.

Furniture collection FAQs
Where can you remove rubbish from?
Whilst this list is not definitive, we can remove from the following places: indoors including upstairs & outside including gardens.
Does my waste need to be in one place?
We’re happy to collect your rubbish from multiple locations on your premises including across several rooms, so there is no need to put it all in one location. It can be helpful when the waste is clearly separated or in one place, particularly if someone else is showing us what to remove, and also to help provide a quote. It can also make the clearance go a little faster and reduce disruption, but it is certainly not a requirement.
How do I pay?
You can prepay for your waste online or over the telephone at the time of booking. This can save time when our team arrives to collect the waste and can be useful if you are not going to be in but the waste is accessible.
What happens if I get my estimated waste size wrong?
We can clear most waste, so this isn’t a problem for us. If you got it badly wrong, or we helped with a quote and the scope wasn’t clear to us and there is a large variation in the cost, we will usually be able to offer a refund on the call-out charge. This is handled on a case-by-case basis and does depend on the circumstances, but we do appreciate sometimes it can be difficult to get 100% right or there can be a genuine misunderstanding.
