Free: builders sand (Hillfields BS16) Gifted - We have roughly 1.5 huge bags of builders sand (pictured). A small amount has already been taken and we will keep a little back for ourselves. So that means there is about 1 big bag worth up for grabs. We'd be open to people taking only part of it if they want - but please say when replying roughly how much you want. We have decanted some of it into smaller bags but not all of it, so it would help if you also brought some smaller bags or containers and were able to help with the decanting.

Free: Swing and slide (Hillfields BS16) Gifted - We got both of these off of trash nothing last year from two different lovely but we now giving them away again as we have upgraded! The swing frame we couldn't take apart as the bolts were rusty and the slide we didn't try to take apart. Both fitted into our LWB van easily enough. The swing will need digging into place or new screws and plates to put into concrete to stop it tipping.

Request: toaster (Hillfields BS16) Expired - Anyone have a spare toaster they don't want? (Ours has stopped working). Would need to be in working order. Ideally in BS15, BS16 or BS5. Thanks!

Free: bathroom sink incl tap + pillar (Hillfields BS16) Expired - A bathroom sink which we originally got from this site, but then weren't able to use because the plumber bought a new one without asking us! So it is untested but as far as we know it all works. The condition of the sink is generally OK but there are 3 things to mention: 1) There is a medium size crack inside the bowl. This is a surface/aethestic crack, not a deep structural one. See picture. 2) The tap seems loose, so I think the washer and/or nut which hold it in place probably need replacing. 3) Overall it could do with a quick clean after being unused for so long. Unfortunately it will have to go to tip if not collected by Thu..

Free: Super king size mattress (Hillfields BS16) Expired - One side (the side with the label in the photos) is stained, and has creaky springs. The other side looks fine and the springs feel fine on that side too. So both problems seem like they could be solved by flipping in on to the side that is in better condition. Unfortunately, if it isn't taken by Thu it will have to go to tip.. Free: Super king size mattress (Hillfields BS16) Expired - Stained one side but looks fine on the other. My housemate already got a new one because there were 2 hollows (maybe where the springs were in bad condition?) but as far as I can tell the springs seem fine on the other side - so I think this is also easily solved by flipping it.

Free: 24 floor tiles (Hillfields BS16) Expired - We have the following tiles up for grabs: 11 x white speckled tiles, 299mm x 299mm 7 x dark grey tiles, 299mm x 299mm 6.5 x light grey tiles, 296mm x 296mm Judging by the size and weight of them I reckon they are floor tiles rather than wall tiles, but I guess you could use them for walls if you were really confident of the strength of your adhesive! Please say in your reply when you can collect, and *include at least one option that isn't last-minute!*

Free: 2 x Mesh komplement drawers (Hillfields BS16) Gifted - 2 mesh drawers for a 50cm wide IKEA wardrobe. We got given the wrong size and it is past time to take them back, so they are brand new. The runners and all the screws etc are with them

Free: toilet (Hillfields BS16) Gifted - A toilet which we originally got from this site, but then weren't able to use because the plumber bought a new one without asking us! So it is untested. When I was checking it over the flush button seemed to be missing a spring. I'm happy to fiddle with that more and see if I can fix it (and reattach the lid) if someone is interested in principle. The condition of the toilet is generally OK but some things to mention: 1) There is some limescale deep inside the u-bend. Could be removed with concentrated acid/descaling tablets. 2) Flush mechanism needs more checking/fixing, as mentioned above - though even the worst case scenario, a new flush mechanism would still be cheaper than an entire toilet! 3) Overall it could do with a clean after being unused for so long. Measurements or more details on request.

Free: lots of sand (Hillfields BS16) Expired - Large quantity of sand (about one and a half huge bags full). It is (and has been) stored with a tarp over it but the moisture has still gotten in so the sand is damp. Since there's a lot of it, we'd be open to people taking only part of it if they want - but please say when replying roughly how much you want.

Free: toilet flush inlet mechanism (Hillfields BS16) Gifted - An inlet valve for a toilet flush. The model is a Siamp Compact 99B. As far as I can tell the parts all seem to be there. The rubber washer looks a bit perished from age so it might be worth replacing that with a similar one.. but for anyone that needs one of these mechanisms, I imagine getting a small washer would still be easier and cheaper than having to get the whole mechanism. Measurements or other details available on request.
