Bulky Waste Collections

Suspension of Bulky Waste Collections over Christmas and New Year Period

Please be advised that you will not be able to book a bulky waste collection between Friday 19th December 2014 - Monday 12th January 2015.

Please Note: This request is for a service at your home, so you will need to sign into your online account, or set up an account if you haven't got one.

It only takes a few minutes, and means you will be able to track progress of your request online.

All collections of bulky waste are now chargeable.

Why not recycle or give them to charity?

To find out where your nearest recycling points are please go to: http://www.bebirmingham.org.uk/recycling_map.php

Alternatively, you can take items to your local housing recycling centre for disposal. There is no charge for this service.

The cost is £25 for the collection of up to 6 items.

If you order online you will receive a £2.00 discount. Before you order the service you will need to access or register for an online account. It only takes a few minutes and means you will be able to track progress of your request(s).

Collection

Once your request is accepted we will advise you of the date we will be collecting your items.

  • Collections will normally happen between 6am and 3pm, Monday - Friday.
  • Please leave all items out by 6am on the day of collection. The earliest you can put your items out is the evening before - please don't leave things out any earlier than this.

Special Assistance

An assisted service is available for people who are elderly and infirm or those with a physical disability. We cannot enter your property but we can arrange to pick items up from immediately outside the property e.g. the front door or side door if accessible. If you require an assisted collection please click 'Yes' under the assistance section in the form.

There are a number of items that we will not collect:

  • Garden waste of any description, including tree branches, bushes, shrubs etc..
  • Soil
  • Rubble and Building Waste
  • Broken glass panes (unless boxed or wrapped and clearly marked)
  • Sheds
  • Boilers
  • Gas Canisters
  • Asbestos
  • Pianos

Collection of Black Sacks

If you are booking a Bulky Waste collection for items in black sacks, the maximum amount that can be requested per individual appointment is 18.

If the collection contains a mix of black sacks and other items it's important to remember that, 3 black sacks = 1 item. A maximum of 6 items per appointment is permitted. Sacks filled with items that have not been presented correctly, are too heavy, or are too dangerous to handle (sharpe edges, points etc..) will not be removed.
