Costs and pricing of collection

For costs and pricing of collections we send a member of staff to your property to see how long and how many staff members are needed to complete the collection, we then produce a quote which we will send to you via email .

If you accept our quote one of our staff members will then contact you to arrange payment and collection date to suit you payments must be made in advance of works.

Payment can be made over the phone by debit or credit card or if you are a business we can invoice you.

We reserve the right to refuse certain items.

Disposal options

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.

You should only let approved companies take your waste away. Ask for identification or a telephone number to ring to check their waste transfer licence.

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.
