Bulky Item Collection

Collection of bulky items

Where disposal in a household waste site is not practical because of an items size, you can arrange to have it collected.

This service helps you with items which you may find difficult to deliver to your local recycling and waste centre because they do not fit in a typical car.

How much is it?

There is a charge for this service which is £17.60 for up to 4 bulky / metal items or £17.60 for each white good or TV we collect, however there are a few exceptions so please contact our Customer Services Team for more details.

What we will collect?

Cookers and Washing machines etc. can also be collected from householders, even if they do not contain CFC's or other dangerous materials, under our bulk items collection scheme any large metal items collected from residents will be taken and recycled.

What we don't collect

This service does not include:

Fridges, Freezers and Portable Air Conditioning equipment containing CFC's (Chlorofluorocarbon) can be disposed of in the Borough's household waste sites, they are then de-gassed and as much material as possible extracted for recycling, alternatively these types of item can be collected by Swale Borough Council.

If you would like advise on how to dispose of the above items please contact our Customer Services Team.

When are the items collected?

Please contact our Customer Services at least one week before you need the item collecting so that we can:

  1. Book your items in for collection and confirm a collection time;
  2. Confirm that we can take all items (as there are some restrictions).

Items will need to be left outside for collection. Where possible, please ensure that items are left outside the evening before collection and are accessible and not blocking roads or pavements.

An alternative - Neighbourhood Furniture Store

The Neighbourhood Furniture Store (NFS) is a not-for-profit community project. We recycle, reuse and redistribute furniture in Swale, Medway, Sittingbourne, Faversham, Sheerness and Maidstone. If you have an item that could be of further use to someone then pleaseĀ use the Neighbourhood Furniture Store website as an alternative to a bulky waste collection.
