Get rid of a large unwanted item

The bulky waste service is for people who are unable to transport bulky items such as furniture, fridges and freezers to the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC).

For the collection and disposal of asbestos, please see Asbestos Removal.

Arranging a collection

To request one of the above collections please call the Streetsmart team on 01793 445501 or email

Normally, items are collected within 10 working-days of your request. You will be advised of the actual collection date when you book.

Any bulky waste items must be placed for collection at the nearest point on your property to the highway on the day of collection. We will collect any item that can be lifted safely and carried by two people. Anything larger will require a specific assessment before we can commit to collect.

Bulky waste collection costs £28.70 (Concession 2 £23.60). This covers the cost of the removal of one fridge or freezer or up to three other qualifying items. Only those items listed on the collection sheet will be collected so please do not put additional items out. The charge is non-refundable.

Please note that we cannot collect:

  • Mirrored doors
  • Refuse sacks
  • Builder's rubble
  • Paving stones
  • Ceramic tiles
  • Double glazing
  • Garden sheds
  • Rabbit hutches
  • Dog kennels
