Bulky collection

This service is for domestic householders only.

Bulky Collections

Please contact Glossopdale Furniture Project if your furniture is still usable. They are a voluntary group helping people on low incomes buy furniture and collect unwanted usable furniture free of charge.   Visit their website if you think your unwanted furniture could be used by someone else.

We offer a chargeable collection service for items not suitable for reuse.

What does a bulky collection cost?
Collection of up to 4 items costs £24.00.
Extra items are £4.60 each (up to a total of 9 items).
If you get council tax or housing benefit the costs are reduced to £12.00 for up to 4 items and £2.30 per additional item.

When does a bulky collection take place?
Collections take place every week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 
Bookings must be made by midnight on Sunday to be collected the following week. We will contact you to confirm the day of your collection.
