Bulky Rubbish Collection

If you have household items that are too big for normal waste collections, we offer a separate, chargeable collection service.

Normally this will be a piece of furniture, white goods, such as fridges, freezers and dishwashers and mattresses. As a general rule items you would take with you if you were moving home.

Please note we do not collect fixtures and fittings such as carpets, windows and doors. These items should be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre (Tip). Alternatively, we can provide a separate quotation for these items.

If you have employed a builder or plumber they should remove their own waste. For a large amount of items please hire a skip. 

Reuse Organisations

Before contacting us to arrange a collection, if your furniture is in good condition please think about donating it to a charitable organisation. 


Our Bulky Waste Collection costs:

  • £26 for one item
  • £36 for two items
  • £46 for three items
  • £56 for four items

If you have more than four items or lots of small items we can arrange to visit your property and give you a quotation. Prices start from £66. 

Payment can be made by

  • Phone with debit/credit card
  • Visit one of the council offices to pay by cash or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to East Herts Council and sent to Operations, East Herts Council, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford, SG13 8EQ

If you need to cancel your booking a £10 fee will be charged.
