Bulky waste collection

Find out how to arrange collection of large household items that cannot be reused or recycled.


We can collect large and unwanted items that cannot be re-used, recycled or transported to our reuse and recycling centres.

Most retailers must provide a way for you to dispose of old household electrical and electronic equipment when you buy a new version of the same item. You must check with the retailer before you order a collection – find out more about retailer responsibilities.
