Items that we can collect must be crushable and include:
- Settees or 3 piece suites
- Dining room table and chairs
- Bedroom furniture i.e. wardrobes, dressing tables
3 seater sofas require assessment to see if they will fit in to the collection vehicle. To book an assessment please call 01298 28423.
Items that we cannot take include:
- Electrical items - these should be booked as an electrical collection or fridge/freezer collection (different charges apply)
- Plaster board
- Concrete slabs
- Garage doors
- Cast iron baths
- Garage doors
- Motorised vehicles or vehicle parts.
Please note that household chemicals or DIY refuse can be taken to the household waste recycling centres at Melandra Road in Glossop, or Waterswallows Road in Buxton. There is no charge by the site to receive these items.
Cost to remove bulky items
Bulky items such as furniture can be removed at a cost of £20 for up to 5 items.
If you have a large number of items or if your items are very large or unusual please call 01298 28423 to obtain a quote for removal. 3 seater sofas require assessment to ensure they will fit in the collection vehicle.
If you are receiving housing and/or council tax benefit the charge will be reduced by 50%.
To arrange a bulky collection or to obtain a quote please call 01298 28423.
Where should I leave my bulky items and when will they be collected?
Items should be left at the front of the property on the same day as your scheduled black bin collection and left with the black bin. Please note we are unable to enter your property to collect items.
If your property has a communal collection point, bulky items should be left outside your property, at the front for easy access.
The cut-off time for arranging these types of collections is 3.30pm on the day before your scheduled black bin collection. Please Note if your collection is on Monday all requests must be received by 3.30pm on friday.
If you can’t physically move your bulky items because you are disabled, please contact Social Service at Derbyshire County Council who should be able to help you.
Can I donate my furniture if still fit for use?
The Glossopdale Furniture Project may be interested in collecting this for distribution to those in need. They collect from your home and there is no charge for this service. Collection may be arranged by telephoning 01457 857505.
How do I arrange a skip?
The council no longer provides a skip service but the Yellow Pages can provide you with details of private contractors who provide this service locally.
Please remember that if the skip is to be placed on a road, verge, highway or footway a permit is required from Derbyshire County Council.
