Free Bulky Waste Collection Every Week, All Year Round @ Nottingham City Council

59
Found 20th Dec 2018
Free Bulky waste service from Nottingham city council, you can use as often as needed. I used it 4 times last year simple book online or over the phone tell them what it is, put outside and cover it up. They will give you a day for removal. Hey presto gone for free (well included in council tax at least) Full list of what they will and wont take is in the link. Useful that they will take old fridges and freezers as they are hard to dispose of responsibly. You do need to be on the electoral roll.

Brilliant, I think I'll post a deal about my bins being collected FOR FREE!


This is for things like sofas and fridges which the binmen will not take and people pay to have removed or have to take to the tip at their own cost and the hassle involved. Not all councils do this for free and most charge for it, but you knew that already.

What a stupid comment. It is very good deal. We don't get that in the West Midlands. Well done Nottingham council
years ago councils used to take bulky items away for free until they decided they could charge and make some extra cash, now they spend thousands of pounds clearing fly tipped rubbish. so now it looks like Nottingham council have realised they can save thousands by doing a free collection and stopping the cowboys making money by stopping them doing the fly tipping killing two birds with one stone. WELL DONE NOTTINGHAM COUNCIL. Lets hope other councils follows suit

Well it is not on the list of things they wont take, so fill your boots. Although if you have a few hundred centrifuges you could make a lot of money
What about Bristol?

Depends which area you live in (£23 where I am!). Useful heads up for those in Nottingham.

Dearly me - the quality of these “deals” is getting worse. It seems anything passes as a “deal” nowadays
Just checked where I live and it's £42! Fab for people in Nottingham
Will they collect from Hampshire?
This is a brilliant deal. Our council charges £30 For two items.
£27 where I live and used said service last month. To get it FOC is pretty good. We also have to pay for our garden waste bins to be emptied. :-(
£30 in Dartford - this a a good local deal
£35 per collection on the Isle of Wight. Great deal.
Free once per year in Sth Yorkshire, then payable. So many fly tippers around our lovely village

Edit: was free a few years ago, just checked again, £32.

I can't vote hot for this. This should've been free in the first place, it's what we pay council tax for. I understand capping it at maybe 3 or 4 times a year for large items but it should be free, in every borough!

The blame lies rather higher up than your local council. Ditto library closures, and a hundred other services that are being cut to the bone.

My council, 3 free uplifts, total of no more than 9 items but then £15
Liverpool free collection Bulky Bob's
£39 in Stratford upon avon
Most people in Nottingham know this, not much of a deal.we pay our council tax so not really free

Wish my local council would do this, seems to be old best, fridge freezers n crap like that dumped everywhere these days. Really pee’s me off. Got rid of an old wardrobe recently, stored it in my garden behind my bi s till I had time to saw it into smaller bits. What’s wrong with people that are happy to dump crap grrrr
Ps, heat added op

But what's the point of the deal? Other councils don't get it and Nottingham does so... move to Nottingham?
Good post to use to hassle your own council with
Thanks OP.
well done Nottingham county council.
Wish Brent take heed, all this fly tipping is a result of having to pay for waste collection of this type. You have to take it when fly tipped so why not take it on your own terms.
If only City of York Council did this, there wouldn't be so much fly tipping. I can't remember the cost for bulky items but I know for a fridge or freezer it is £26 per item to dispose of.

if you live in Nottingham you can use it, if you don't you can't.....
This should be good at combating those people who inhabit an area of ground for a short time, and use it as a base for a short term cash-in-hand waste removal business.

Great deal for Nottingham I sincerely hope will will Stop Washers/Fridgers/Settees being dumped in Beauty spots.
Rest of the country should follow suit.

I'm pretty sure this example would be local shortsightedness:
The cost of collecting a pre-determined quantity/size/time/location must surely be far less than the cost involved in finding and fishing the same objects out of a ditch, and performing cleanup.

I'm also amazed that there are charges for such as the garden waste, being that this disincentiveises non-landfill and recycling.
Which means higher landfill costs and penalties, while less potential income from the 'product' (albeit with som money from the residents instead).
I wish my council did this. My council doesn't even recycle plastic!
Our metal items get picked up without even ringing the council, must be the metal fairies.

We have to pay. But I think they collect 3 items. Don't no the price sorry

I'm not sure how good a deal it truly is. Councils up and down the country are complaining about lack of funding, yet some councils have a surplus that they can offer this service! Perhaps they could manage there budgets better.
Great deal for those people who live in the NCC, but if you live in broxtowe, rushcliffe, gedling councils etc its a no go. you have to pay. I've debated wheeling my stuff to a friends house 2 roads away.

It's not free, the cost is factored into the council tax
