Bulky collection service

Bulky item collection service

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.

Residents can have one collection of up to three items free of charge per financial year (1 April to 31 March). Second and subsequent collections of up to three items that are made during the same financial year are charged at £17.

If your bulky waste is from a business, please visit our bulky commercial waste page.
