Options for recycling or getting rid of bulky waste and household electrical items, how to book a bulky waste collection from the council and guidance on using a local waste removal company.
‘Bulky waste’ is any household item that cannot be disposed of in any of your wheelie bins, such as furniture and household electrical items.
Take a look at what you can and can’t put in each of your bins – green bin, blue bin, brown bin, sacks.
You can dispose of your bulky waste in 4 ways:
find out if it can be repaired or reused by a charity or organisation
take it to a Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS)
check to see if we can collect it for you
find a legally operating waste removal company who can take your waste away and charge you to do so. As you are still responsible for your waste once it has been collected from your house, you must ensure the waste removal company is operating legally.
Please note: if the waste is from your business, read about how to dispose of your business waste legally.
We offer two types of bulky waste collections to cover 'standard' and 'non-standard' items. Find out which of these your waste is, and if we can collect it:
For the council to collect your 'standard' bulky waste, such as sofas or ovens, it will cost:
• £30 for between 1 and 5 items
• £60 for between 6 and 10 items
Following completion of the booking form, we will send you a quote for the cost of removing 'non-standard' items, such as kitchen or bathroom suites, sheds and radiators.
Please note: you will only be able to book and pay for standard items using this form. For non-standard items, or a mix of both standard and non-standard items, you will be sent a quote. Read more about quotes.

Bulky waste collections run from Monday to Friday every week, excluding bank holidays. The day that your waste can be collected on depends on the area that you live in:
Leave your items outside on the ground floor of your own property in a place that is easy for us to access. They should be available from 7am on the day of collection.
Please note: we are unable to enter your home, garage, shed or an outbuilding to collect your bulky items. If you're unable to put the items out for collection yourself, please ask a family member, friend or neighbour for help.
