Arrange removal of bulky waste items

Donate furniture and electrical appliances to charities for reuse

We encourage residents to look at reuse options first, before disposing of any item.

There are many charitable reuse organisations in the borough that collect good quality reusable furniture and household electrical appliances.

They donate or sell these items at low cost to those who need them. This option prevents items from going to landfill and has a positive social benefit for local people.

Arrange removal of bulky waste items

The Council can help you with the removal of larger household items, such as furniture, electrical appliances and DIY waste (for example, bathroom suites, window frames, doors).

The collection cost depends on the items being collected. Rothercard holders are entitled to a 50 percent discount on household items only - no discount for DIY waste.

  • DIY waste - £39.93 for up to three items, then £25 for each 3 additional items 
  • Household items - £21 for up to three items, then £15 for each further 3 items

We can only collect a maximum of nine items at a time. Each item is counted separately so, for example, three items would be a bedroom set of bed, wardrobe and dressing table or a bathroom suite of bath, toilet and sink.

Please ensure that all Fridges/ Freezers are empty. We are unable to collect appliances which contain food items.
