Request a bulky item collectionA bulky item collection is a service to dispose of larger household items. Items that could be collected include beds, wardrobes, washing machines, fridges, freezers, TVs, tables etc.
Recycle versus reuse
Some of the bulk waste collected from homes is disposed of as waste. However we now try to reuse as much as possible through our reuse shop; Revive, based at Brighouse Household Waste Recycling Centre. If your bulky waste items are suitable to be sold through our shop, our staff will redirect it there, instead of disposing of it as waste.
Alternatively, you can contact a charity such as those listed below, to make use of your unwanted goods?

Where should I put my items?
All items must be outside your property in an accessible, unlocked location and ready for collection before you place your request and make the payment.
How long will it take?
We aim to collect bulky waste collections within 14 working days of your order being submitted. Our contractor can come out to your property as soon as 7.00am the next working day, and in some instances they can attend on the same day. The items will be taken within 14 working days, but if there is nothing out when they arrive, they will not return, and you will have to pay for another collection.
Note: Before you fill in and submit an online request, make sure you have identified all the items you want to dispose of.
Once you have submitted the request form you won't be able to add another item later.
I can't get the items outside. What do I do now?
If you cannot get the items outside, a special bulky item collection from indoors can be arranged.
There is an additional charge for this service.
