ERIC is our councils service for removing heavy bulky items to the tip ,and it does a reduction on cost for pensioners .£30 Brilliant service . I thought Id arrange it for the removal of an ancient three piece suite, sofabed and double bed belonging to a pensioner friend who's selling up to pay for a nursing home.
Ah ,good old ERIC , problem solved I thought --until I was informed she needed to make sure that all items were removed from the house and put at the bottom of the drive by 7am, ready for collection !!! So,basically --the service is useless to pensioners or the infirm !
