Bulky collection

We are currently unable to visit to carry out assessments for bulky waste collections. Please contact us if you have any queries before making a booking, you have more than 9 items for collection or your items are large or awkward to move. 

Bulky items are classed as household items only that are not fixed features. This service is for domestic householders only.

Please contact Glossopdale Furniture Project if your furniture is still usable. They are a voluntary group helping people on low incomes buy furniture and collect unwanted usable furniture free of charge.   Visit their website if you think your unwanted furniture could be used by someone else.

We offer a chargeable collection service for items not suitable for reuse.

What does a bulky collection cost?
Collection of up to 4 items costs £20.00.
Extra items are £4.60 each (up to a total of 9 items).
If you get council tax or housing benefit the costs are reduced to £10.00 for up to 4 items and £2.30 per additional item.

When does a bulky collection take place?
Collections take place every week on Thursday. Items need to be presented at your bin collection point from 6am. 
Bookings must be made by midnight on Sunday to be collected the following week. We will contact you if there are any unforeseen circumstances that require a collection day change.
