Increase in bulky item collections
We would like to apologise to residents who are waiting longer than expected for their bulky items to be collected. We have received a very high number of bulky collection requests from residents and are unfortunately behind on collections.
What we offer
We offer a collection service for up to three bulky household items that residents are unable to take to one of our Household Recycling Centres.
Before booking a bulky collection, consider whether the item(s) are suitable for reuse.
There are several groups, which can collect or accept items for reuse in North Lincolnshire. For more information on these schemes read our furniture reuse page.
From 1 May 2018 residents are entitled to one collection of up to three items free of charge per rolling 12 months (for example, if you request a bulky collection on 10 August one year, you will be entitled to your next free collection from 11 August the following year). Second and subsequent collections of up to three items can be requested within this period but they will be subject to a charge.
Bulky item collection service is for household waste. We are unable to collect waste arising from construction or demolition, which includes improvement, repair or alteration. Items such as bathroom suites (including bathtubs, sinks and toilets), kitchen units (such as sinks and cupboards) and radiators are classed as part of the fixtures and fittings of a house, which we will not collect.
If your bulky waste is from a business, please visit our bulky commercial waste page.
