How to book a bulky waste collection

Book bulky waste collection

or call 01294 310000. Our advisers will ask a few questions before booking your collection slot, depending on availability.

Please note: from February 2024 we are changing the way we dispose of upholstered furniture to reduce potential harm to the environment.

Change or cancel a collection

Call us to change, or cancel, a collection up to 3pm on the working day before due collection date.

Private contractors carrying out work

Private letting owners and letting agents operate commercially. They have a duty of care to dispose of waste materials left at the premises.

Contractor's waste cannot be collected as part of a household bulky waste collection. Before a contractor carries out works at your home you should check if they have a waste carrier's license. The contractor is responsible for removing any waste created.
