Bulky Item Collection Service

We provide a low-cost, bulky household items collection service to help you get rid of any unwanted items that are too big to put in your bin. The quick and simple to use service is available to all domestic properties in West Norfolk.

 

For £28.00 we will collect and dispose of, up to three unwanted, large items from your home.  There is no limit to the amount of items you can dispose of, with each additional item being charged at £9.50.

 

To arrange and pay for a collection

  • Please call 01553 776676 to arrange a suitable time and date; and to pay for the service.
  • Payments can be made by credit or debit card over the phone, or paid by cheque or postal order by post. 

  • Full payment must be received before a collection will be made.

Preparing your items for collection

  • Leave your unwanted items in an easily accessible place outside your home for our operators to collect.

  • Ensure that your unwanted items are visible from the roadside as collection crews are not permitted to enter homes, sheds, garages and outbuildings to collect items.

Please note we are currently unable to arrange bulky item collections online.

 

To cancel or change an existing collection telephone 01553 776676 at least 24 hours before your scheduled collection is due to take place.
