Maybe in the car park it’s transporting it that’s difficult as the vans not big enough
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 10 days ago.

Thank you. You need to give them a reasonable opportunity to collect it and usually it is recommended a months notice before you dispose of it. The notice must be in writing, advise them of where the scaffolding is kept and where they can collect it from, give them a specific deadline by which it must be collected and also advise them of what would happen if they fail to do so.

You actually should not just dispose of it and you need to try and make the most of it, like sell it or at least try and recoup some money for it. That money would be due to them, less any costs and expenses due to you already, including those involved in the removal and disposal of the scaffolding.
