Bulky waste collections

If you have large items for disposal which are too big for the bin, you can either book a reuse collection or if they aren’t suitable for reuse, book a normal bulky waste collection.

Book a bulky waste collection

Don’t think your items are fit for reuse?

Call the Cleaner Greener Hotline on 020 8753 1100. You’ll need to list each item for collection when you book your collection.

The council’s bulky waste service is for items which are too big to go in your bin or cannot be thrown away with your normal rubbish such as electrical items and builders rubble.

The council will collect up to ten items for £25.65. The ten items can be any combination of pieces including household furniture, bags, electrical items.

We’ll collect extra items for a charge, just ask for a quotation. A visit may be necessary in some cases. If you need a visit and quote, the minimum charge is £34.82.

Please make sure to check whether your items can be collected for reuse first, as this is the cleanest and greenest way to remove them!

Preparation and collection

Once you've paid, you'll be given a reference number by our contact centre. Please attach a notice with this number clearly showing, onto all bulky waste items you place out for collection. This allows collection crews to identify your items and separate them from anything that may have been fly-tipped (dumped) nearby.
