Our bulky waste collection service
To arrange a collection of bulky household items please call our Customer Services team on 01530 45 45 45 or request a collection online.
All collections take place on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. You will need to confirm the items you would like to have collected and where you will be leaving them.
Please note we are very busy with bulky waste collections at the moment - please expect delays when booking your collection.
What does it cost?
1-3 items = £26
3-6 additional items = £5 per additonal item (this will require a second collection slot).
There is a maximum limit of 6 items per household.
If you receive housing benefit, council tax support or income support you are entitled to two free collections per household per year. Please have proof of benefits ready before you call.

We cannot accept asbestos - for advice on the disposal of asbestos please contact Leicestershire County Council on 0116 305 0001.
All soft furnishings must be in reasonable/clean condition for us to take. We will not take soft furnishings that have mould or pet waste on, or that have been soiled beyond what our crew consider to be reasonable. The decision will be made by the crew who can assess the item at the time of the collection.
If the item is rejected and is the only item on the booking we will make a refund. If there are a total of 2-3 items on the booking and one is rejected, no refund will be made. If there are more than 3 items, we will refund the £5 charge for the rejected item.

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. You should only let approved companies take your waste away. Ask for identification or a telephone number to ring to check their ID.
You can also check if a company is registered to dispose of waste on the Environment Agency's website.
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.
