Bulky Waste - Having a clear out? We can help!
Old sofa? fridge? carpet? No problem! SKDC's Waste and Recycling team can take and dispose of your unwanted bulky items.
Bulky items are household items, such as furniture or electricals that can't be collected in your normal waste collection. We will collect these from your property but we will charge for collection.
How much does it cost?
- Bulk items are charged at £11 for the first item and £5 each for all other items.
- Fridges and freezers are charged separately at £11 due to the disposal costs of these items.
*Please note that charges apply to each single item collected (so a three-piece suite, for example, is three bulk waste items).
Arrange your bulk item collection today by calling us on 01476 40 60 80!
Once payment has been made, we will collect the item from outside your property on a day agreed with you at the time of booking. You don't have to be in at the time, as long as the item is easily accessible from your property.
If you have an unusual item or a large amount of waste, one of our officers will need to visit to assess the cost.
We are not able to collect the following items:
- Builder's rubble
- Paving slabs
- Garden furniture or any garden items
We are unable to remove gas bottles and suggest you ring the suppliers - the telephone number is usually printed on the item.
There have been cases recently where scrap metal collectors have taken away white goods where customers have paid SKDC to take them away. All bulky collections from us will be carried out by employees wearing an SKDC high visibility jacket driving an SKDC vehicle. If you are unsure you can ask for identification as all employees will have this available if asked.
