Do House Clearance Companies Take Clothes?
When you book a house clearance with Zero Waste Group, we will take everything that you ask us, apart from a few exceptions including dangerous chemicals. We are often asked whether clothes are included as part of the house clearance, and yes, we do take clothes if you want us to.
But not all house clearance companies take clothes, so make sure you check with other companies, including charities, before you make a booking.

When house clearance companies accept clothes
Most house clearance companies accept clothes as part of their service. House clearance companies can take clothes in any condition, whether they are new, used, or damaged. However, if using a charity for a paid house clearance, double check with them. They might only take items that have a resale value.
When it comes to the type of clothing that house clearance companies accept, there are no restrictions. They can take any type of clothing, including shoes, hats, and accessories.
At Zero Waste Group, we donate as much as we can from a house clearance, and that might include any clothes that we take away.
Some house clearance companies will sort clothing into different categories based on their condition. Clothes that are in good condition may be donated to charity shops or second-hand stores. Clothes that are damaged or stained may be recycled or sent to a landfill unfortunately.
At Zero Waste Group, we manage to divert as much as 90% of waste from landfill sites.
It is important to note that house clearance companies have a responsibility to dispose of clothes in an environmentally friendly way. They must comply with local regulations and guidelines for waste disposal. Most companies have partnerships with recycling centres and charity organisations to ensure that clothes are disposed of in a responsible and sustainable way.
In conclusion, house clearance companies do take clothes as part of their service. They can dispose of clothes in any condition and have partnerships with recycling centres and charity organisations to ensure that clothes are disposed of in a responsible and sustainable way.
