Bulky waste items

We can collect large household items from your home.  There are three different waste types that we collect:

  • Type 1 - Domestic fridges/freezers and electrical items e.g. television, washing machine, microwave, cooker
  • Type 2 - Soft furnishings e.g. sofa, arm chair, bed settee, ottoman
  • Type 3 - Other e.g cabinets, bicycle, bedframes

How much does it cost?

From the 1 April, 2024, for the first item we charge £22 and for every additional item after that we charge £11.

If you have a mix of type 1, type 2 or type 3 items then you will be charged per type i.e A fridge and a mattress would cost £32 as both items have to be collected separately. 

We can only collect your items if the following criteria have been met, otherwise, some or all of your items may not be collected:

  • Only items listed when making a booking will be collected
  • Soft furnishings that can soak up water must be covered and kept dry * Mattresses and bed settees must not be soiled, please contact a private contractor for these items
  • Microwaves should have the glass plates removed
  • Fridges and freezers should have food and internal glass shelves removed and be defrosted
  • Items should be presented on the scheduled day of collection in a visible location

Please note - If you are receiving your state pension you are entitled to a free bulky collection once a year for up to three items. Please call the Customer Services team on 0115 901 3621 to arrange this.
