What is this for?
To request a collection of your unwanted bulky household items, such as furniture, electrical goods, carpets and mattresses - typically any bulky household item that you would take with if you were to move house.
What is it going to cost?
- £32 per bulky collection of up to 8 items
- If you in receipt of either Housing Benefit or Local Council Tax Support then this cost is reduced to £16 per bulky collection of up to 8 items. If so, you will need to provide us with your National Insurance Number, Benefit Reference Number and postcode (so we can verify you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit)
What we need from you
We need you to place the item(s) in an easily accessible location outside your property, (not in a garage or out-building), but within your boundary and you will need to tell us where they will be. We are not able to enter your property to collect items. Items should be made available for collection by 7:30am on the day.
If you leave items in your back garden make sure that they are properly contained, a manageable size and easily moved, ensuring that they will fit down the side of your house. If in doubt please leave the items in your front garden. If bags or bin liners are used these should be tied so not to spill, the bags used should be no larger than an average black bin liner (sack) not a wheeled bin liner.
The Council is committed to meeting its data protection obligations and handling your information securely. You should make sure you read and understand the Waste and Recycling - privacy notice, which sets out what you need to know about how Doncaster Council will use your information in the course of our work as a Waste Collection Authority.
