Getting rid of large and electrical household items

About our pick up service and information on how to dispose of large and electrical household items, sometimes known as bulky waste.

Our pick up service

To arrange a collection, call KSD Group Environment Services on 01273 608 142 from 8:00am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

First, please check what we can collect and the prices below. Also remember to tell them you're a council customer.

Please don't leave items on the pavement or by communal bins, even if offering them for free. This is fly-tipping, which is a criminal offence.

What we can collect and costs

We need to be able to access your property safely and easily.

We charge a minimum of £10 per collection. The maximum we'll charge per collection is £130, or £65 at the discounted price.
