You can find what this service can collect, what the charges are and how to arrange a collection on https://www.southhams.gov.uk/article/3272/Bulky-Waste-Collections. The cost of collecting a single item is £18.00 each for example a bed frame and head board would be classed as one item, a bed and mattress as 2 items and a 3 piece suite as a 3 items. Payment must be made in advance using a form on the website.
You can also take these items to the recycling centre at Ivybridge for free.

Plastic Free Status for Local Businesses
Calling all businesses who operate in the Parish of Brixton. Check out this fantastic wooden plaque and accompanying certificate you can be awarded if you simply change 3 of your plastic products to an alternative more sustainable material and provide a plan for moving to other plastic free alternatives.
We know that many of you have already ditched plastic straws for paper alternatives, amongst other examples such as providing biodegradable bags instead of plastic. Please get in touch with Joe Parish, our Plastic Free community Leader, if you’d like to get involved or even better if you think you have already achieved this target.
Good luck and why not get on board our ambition to become a plastic free community
