Bulky waste collection

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

Overview

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.
