Bulky waste collections - Bulky waste collections

Residents can use our bulky waste service to take away large unwanted items like old sofas, wardrobes, mattresses and fridges and freezers.

By using the Council’s service you can book your appointment online, have the items collected from your door and also have the peace of mind that the items will be recycled where possible.

Below you will find a list of what we are able to collect and our pricing structure.

As part of this service, we are also able to collect a contaminated Blue Bin, an additional household waste bin, or up to six refuse sacks of household waste.

Please note the following:

Bulky waste will only be collected if there are NO persons at the property self-isolating due to the symptoms of COVID-19.  If anyone is self-isolating, please contact us after this period has ended.

The following guidance MUST be followed:-

  • In the “date available box” on the collection details page, please ensure you put the date of booking and immediately place the bulky items out to the front of your property on either your garden or driveway. Items must be out to the front of the property for collection and cannot be collected from the rear.
  • Collection will then take place after the items are placed outside and up to a maximum of 7-10 working days.

In addition to the weekly collection of wheeled bins, we also provide a chargeable service, from domestic properties only, to enable you to dispose of those items that are too large to go in your wheeled bin.

The charges are:

  • £13.50 for the first item them £10.00 for each subsequent item thereafter
  • (up to a maximum of 9 items)

The items above that we collect can also be taken by yourself at no cost to one of the Household Waste Recycling Centres in the district.  If you wish to dispose of a household item that does not appear on either of the lists on this page, please contact Environment Services for advice.

Using the Household Recycling Centres

Bassetlaw residents who wish to use the household recycling centres will need to register with Nottinghamshire County Council to continue to use the sites.  Your use of the recycling centres depends on where you live, the waste you have, who you are and the vehicle you wish to use. 

To make sure only those allowed to use the recycling centres do so you must register your vehicle(s) with Nottinghamshire County Council first.

If you move house or change your vehicle, or have registered one vehicle and wish to add another (you can register up to two), you will need to complete the registration form again to update your details.
