Bins, rubbish & recycling Get rid of a large unwanted item

Before you ask us to collect an unwanted item, can you get rid of it another way?

Who we will collect from

We'll collect large items from your home address only. See what businesses should do.

We cannot collect from inside your property and items must be put as close to your bin collection point as possible. If you can't move items easily some local charities will collect for free. 

If you live in a managed building - your caretaker / building manager may be able to help.

The costs

  • You can have one free collection of up to three items, a year (April 1 – 31 March). We will only take the items you have told us about. However, with this collection we will remove an additional three items for £27
  • If you have already had a free collection, it is £27 for up to three items and £54 for up to six items.

Please make sure large items such as cupboards and fridges are empty (apart from their own fixtures).

We will only take the items you tell us about.

See things we cannot take before you continue.
