Gedling Borough Council is once again offering residents across the borough the opportunity to dispose of large waste items for free, for a limited period in January and February.

Bulky waste collections are usually chargeable (except for pensioners, who can arrange a free bulky waste collection throughout the year), however the council is providing collections for free for anyone living in Gedling borough, from Monday 9 January to Friday 10 February 2023. The council will take away up to three large items from outside residents’ homes for no cost, when a free bulky waste collection is booked. 

To take advantage of the offer, residents will need to book a collection online at or call the council on 0115 901 3901. The number of collections per day are limited and it is first come, first served and subject to availability.

Portfolio Holder for Environment, Councillor Ron McCrossen said:

“The free bulky waste collections are always extremely popular and we are pleased to be able to offer this service to people across Gedling Borough again this year.

January is a good time to have a clear out and we hope that the free collections help people to get rid of things that are too big for their bins. Items that can be collected include TVs, carpets, artificial Christmas trees and mattresses.”
