Bulky waste collections

Free large item collections with Bright Sparks

Bright Sparks is a social enterprise that collects reusable furniture and household items for free. The reusable items are cleaned, tested, repaired and distributed to local people.

Book a bulky waste collection

We offer a Monday to Friday collection service for large items.

There is a cost to booking a bulky waste collection – unless you receive housing benefit.

There are ways to get rid of items for free:

  • There are 4 waste and recycling centres near Hackney which residents can use free of charge. You can take a range of household waste items to the sites, including unusable furniture, garden waste, electrical appliances, scrap metal and textiles.
  • Bright Sparks, a local social enterprise, will collect large reusable items for free.
  • Items are collected for free via Freecycle or Freegle.
  • Hackney Fixers arrange free, fun repair events to help you fix electrical and electronic goods. Find the next event on their website.

Alternatively, LoveJunk, a waste removal marketplace, helps you to find the cheapest collector.
