How to dispose of bulky furniture ? Is there rules of getting rid of rubbish in the green bins? Needing quilts bed linen and terrace furniture -

Thinking of Ikea - would they deliver? or maybe just deliver to town square ?  what is the system with the gas bottles ? how much ?

do we leave them outside the door on a day ?

Got so many more to ask - hopefully someone out there can help.

bins are brilliant and all recyclable just as you enter the pueblo from the torrox frigiliana road. You can get gas from the little shop opposite the football academy office again not far from the entrance into the pueblo via the calle pontillo.

Hi there,

Welcome to lovely Torrox pueblo!

You can buy gas bottles from the above mentioned shop, also the ferreteria on the square and Paco's shop on Calle Baja. In fact, his shop is full of stuff worth checking out, including garden/terrace bits. He will deliver, too, he's really helpful with good prices.

The gas lorry comes on a Wednesday morning, from 8am onwards, depending where you live. Ask your neighbours what time, as they whizz by and are easy to miss. The gas men are also very helpful and will carry the bottles up stairs for you.

Rubbish collection is amazing, every night it's picked up and they take most things. There are many recycling points around the pueblo, a good excuse to wander around and orientate yourself.

On the costa, just by Sabadell bank by the roundabout, is a furniture and decoration shop with a range of soft furnishings, mattresses, and pillows. Of course, the Chinese shops have bedding but, not always the most contemporary of designs. As it's summer and you don't need so much on the bed, it's another good excuse to wander further afield, as Nerja has some shops with nice stuff. Malaga is chock-full of lovely soft furnishing places, too, and the city will reward many visits.

The costa has two charity shops, one on the avenue leading to the lighthouse, the other opposite Mercadona. They both have bed linen/curtains etc, and the second larger one has furniture, they will deliver on Thursdays. They also need volunteers to help with the dog rescue service they run, just contact TAIL or stop by the shops.

If you want to meet up for coffee or a copa, I'd be happy to do so.

We bought in La Cala de Mijas last year and IKEA was a blessing.   Yes they do deliver but they charge for the delivery.

We have bought furniture from IKEA in Malaga. They deliver when they say they will and usually within a day or so. You can also get gas from the BP garage. Depending on the furniture, some of your neighbors may be interested!
