New prices for bulky items

The cost of getting rid of your bulky items through the Council has been reduced so that even more people are encouraged to use the service.

Around 3,900 people used Bassetlaw Council’s Bulky Waste Collection service during 2017/18 to get rid of unwanted items like old sofas, wardrobes, mattresses and fridges and freezers.

While the price of collecting a single bulky item will remain at £12.50, the revised costs for additional items has been reduced to £9, providing potential savings of up to £28 for multiple items.

Cllr Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “We hope that by reducing the cost of collections, this will encourage residents to dispose of their unwanted items responsibly, rather than use private companies, some of whom may potentially be operating illegally and be responsible for fly-tipping.”

“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.”

In addition to the amended prices, you can also arrange for a one-off collection of a contaminated bin, an additional household waste bin, or up to six refuse sacks of household waste for £12.50.
