Get rid of large unwanted items

How to dispose of unwanted large items

If you're looking to dispose of unwanted household items such as beds, mattresses, fridges and furniture, we offer a collection service from domestic properties within the borough. Businesses need to make their own arrangements to dispose of commercial waste.

Alternative ways to reuse and recycle your items

You may also consider one of the following alternatives:

  • Donate your bulky items to a charity shop or local scheme, such as:
  • Sell your items through free ads
  • Return your local electrical and electronic equipment to the retailer for free. Retailers must provide a way for customers to dispose of their old household electrical and electronic equipment when they sell a new version of the same item under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations.

Advice for hiring someone to remove your waste and collect household goods

If waste is illegally dumped and traced back to you, you could be held responsible.
