Nottingham City Council Free Bulky Waste Collection Availible Again

Posted 11th May 2020
Reduced bulky waste service now available The council is now operating a reduced bulky waste service in line with current social distancing rules. Certain restrictions have been put in place that are outlined below. Any booking that does not meet this criteria will not be collected.

  • All items need to be collected / handled by one person only (so please disassemble if required). If one person is unable to lift the item it won’t be collected. Exceptions to this are large sofas which will be collected
  • All bedding/towels/fabrics must be doubled bagged
  • We will not be collecting mattresses
  • All sofas and chairs must be completely covered, or they will not be collected.
  • We are not able to collect any white or electrical good such as fridges, TV's and cookers

Bulky Waste Collections – Restrictions

  • Only one booking is permitted per household, per month. The number of items per booking is six items maximum (a dismantled item will be categorised as one item) All bedding/towels/cloths must be double bagged and mattresses or white or electrical goods will not be collected
  • Items booked for collection must be managed/handed by one person. If they can’t be managed/handled by one person – the item will not be collected.
  • If anyone in the household is self-isolating or is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 they will not be able to make a booking. All booking (online/calls) will follow a flowchart to help identify if this is the case.
The Items We Will Collect This service is for disposing of large items of household waste that either do not fit in the bin (e.g. furniture) or cannot be put out for your normal bin collection (e.g. a television).

These items must be kept covered and dry. Sofas that have recliners on them need to be broken down to reduce the weight

Where one of these criteria is met, most things can be collected, but there are a few exceptions.…ste

    I just wished Nottingham opened their tips again, preferably the Beeston one.

    This is excellent news though,finally our neighbour can get rid of all the crap they have on the close.
