Is it possible to recycle a wooden conservatory/summer house?

There is one in our garden which we dont use and want to remove. It has a wooden frame, singel glazed glss windows and a polycarbonate roof. Quality seems ok, not amazing, but not rubbish either.
Just wondering if it'd be possible to take it apart carefully and offer it on freecycle rather than bunging it all into a skip, and if so if it would be v pricey to remove it carefully?
Any thoughts?
I don't like sending large amounts of buidling materials to landfill and we cant re-use it ourselves.

Definitely freecycle it, there will be people who can come and take it apart themselves and take it away. You don't necessarily have to do the hard bit yourself.

DO you think so Fennel? That would make life much easier for us, thought it might be too much of an ask...

It's in a really odd place in the garden - want to make a patio there as it get's the evening sun but we cant with the summer house thingy there.
Am bit scared of freecycle, all those emails and faff trying to log on, but will give it a go.
