There are a number of ways you can reuse or dispose of bulky waste items such as furniture and electrical goods...
*Please note we have currently suspended our bulky waste collection service. Take a look at the alternative options below*
React - a local furniture reuse charity
REACT is a charity based at the Marleine Reid Centre in Coalville. They will collect good quality furniture and white goods free of charge from homes in North West Leicestershire.
REACT is a training project for long term unemployed people - giving them a chance to learn new skills and move into training or employment.
Money from the sale of the items enable REACT to continue providing training. For more information telephone 01530 510 515 or visit the website.
You can take items to the household waste and recycling sites at Ashby Road, Coalville, Nottingham Road, Lount and Hathern Road, Shepshed.These sites are run by Leicestershire County Council. Please note you may require a permit if taking a van or trailer to the Household Waste Sites.
Safe and legal disposal
It's always the responsibility of the person creating the waste to make sure it is disposed of in a responsible and legal way.
Recently there have been a number of scrap metal thefts, including washing machines and other household items which have been taken from people's homes. You should only let approved companies take your waste away. Ask for identification or a telephone number to ring to check ID.
Local household waste sites, our bulky waste service and all the local reuse options are available for safe and legal disposal of scrap metal and electrical goods.
