Arrange furniture collection

Recycle or repair electrical items

You can recycle, repair or arrange a collection for electrical items small and large.

Collections for other bulky items

We offer a collection service for bulky items including TVs, fridges and washing machines. Collections must be booked in advance. Collections start at £15, but residents who receive housing benefit do not have to pay. Please read our bulky waste terms and conditions.

If you’re renovating your house or redecorating a bathroom, kitchen or other room, and you need to get rid of your waste, you’ll need to book a commercial waste collection. This kind of waste is not eligible for a bulky waste collection.

Please contact or call 0208356 6683 to obtain a quote.

If you incorrectly book a bulky waste collection instead of a commercial waste collection, then the items left outside will not be collected.
