    I have 7 large harris fence panels that I would like to dispose of, could anyone please advise me how to go about it? I cannot take them to the local tip because I do not have a truck.

    Just pay a LICENSED. waste collector to take them away or burn them. Not really rocket science......

    Thanks, I contacted one "scrap metal" person earlier this afternoon, he said they do not take them because the metal mesh foul their machines. I will look up "scrap metal" and keep trying.

    put them outside your gate, with a large sign saying "fencing for sale, £50 each. Please knock."

    they will be gone by morning.

    If they're in good condition, sell them on fleabay., or give them away on a local freebie site.

    as Bobby says -put them on social media they will soon be collected

    I would say try nextdoor or a local facebook group

    stuff like this comes up on the local East Grinstead group quite often.

    I'd have been interested myself a couple of weeks ago, as I'm building a huge (long) £25k wall presently...

    'Burn it'...lol.

    Surely if you live in a multimillion pounds property you could afford to pay a licensed waste collector to take them away?
