Large unwanted items collection service

How large unwanted items collection service works

We can collect large unwanted items that are not easily recycled or can be disposed of by you.
Collections take place on Tuesday or Wednesday.
You can select your own collection date up to 8 weeks in advance.
You can book as many collections as you like in a year.
Leave the items clearly outside the front of your property, the night before your collection.
They will be collected on your requested day by 4pm.

What we can collect

We collect a wide range of goods from carpets to washing machines.
Before you order a collection check the list of acceptable items.

What we can't collect

We can't collect pianos, garden waste, rubble or items of DIY nature, clinical or hazardous waste.
These items can be disposed of using a legitimate commercial collection or at the Household Waste Recycling Centre in Reading or Bracknell.
