Bulky waste collections

Old sofa? Fridge? Carpet? We can take away your unwanted bulky items.

To arrange a bulky waste collection, please contact us on 01476 40 60 80.

*Please note this service is not currently available to book online, please contact us on the above number to arrange and pay for your bulky collection.


We charge £12 for the first bulky item and £6 for each additional item. Fridges and freezers are charged at £12 each, as it costs the council more to dispose of them. 

Charges apply to each single item collected - so a three-piece suite counts as three.

Corner sofas will be charged by the amount of sections they can be divided into. For example, an "L" shaped corner sofa will be charged as two items.

Please note that a fridge or freezer cannot be classed as the first bulky item.

Once you have paid, we will collect the item from outside your property on a day agreed with you. You don't have to be in at the time - just make sure it is easy for our team to find the item and place it out by 7.30am.

If you have an unusual item or a large amount of waste, a member of our team will need to visit you first.

We are not able to collect:

  • radiators
  • builder's rubble
  • bricks
  • concrete
  • paving slabs
  • garden furniture or any garden items
  • gas bottles (please ring the supplier)
  • fixtures and fittings such as kitchens, bathrooms
  • soil


There have been cases where scrap metal collectors have taken away electrical items before our team arrived. All our employees wear a South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) high-visibility jacket and drive an SKDC vehicle. If you are unsure, you can ask to see formal identification from any of our employees.
