Households across the country are using the lockdown to clear out their cupboards. New data reveals that the garage holds the most high-value items for sale. These include kids’ bicycles, camping tents, skis and more. However, almost half (48%) of people admitted to binning items they no longer need. With a further 1 in 5 openly admitting to resorting to fly-tipping in a bid to rid their homes of clutter. The average UK home is sitting on 42 unwanted items worth an estimated £500.
