Bulky waste items

We offer a collection service for bulky items of furniture, such as beds, three-piece suites or cookers from domestic homes.

The cost is £46.75 per two items, which falls to £25.60 if you receive certain benefits (we may undertake a check to confirm that you are in receipt of these qualifying benefits). If you require a collection of more than two items you will need to book and pay for a second collection.

Bulky waste collection request form Enquiries form

You can call 01423 500600 to arrange a collection. You may pay using a credit or debit card when you telephone.

If the items are in reasonable condition, you could consider donating them to Essential Needs a small local charity that runs a reuse scheme for people on low incomes or income-based benefits. They can take furniture and white goods, as well as small household items such as bedding, curtains and electrical items.

Many other charities also accept household items such as The British Heart Foundation, Saint Michael's Hospice or Disability Action Yorkshire.

If you are looking to dispose of other non-bulky items further information on the household waste and recycling centres in North Yorkshire is available, please see North Yorkshire County Council's website.
