Bulky Items Collection Service

Your standard weekly refuse collection service is suitable for most non-recyclable waste that you will need to put out, but some larger items will need to be collected separately. You can book special collections for bulky items through the council's contractor Veolia, which will pick up some reusable or recyclable items for free, and make a charge for other items.

All collections are booked through the Veolia Haringey Contact Centre:

Conditions and exclusions

As a general rule, anything that you might take with you when moving home can be collected. We make every effort to reuse or recycle as many items as possible.

We will not collect:

  • Rubble
  • Masonry and tiles
  • Construction waste
  • Waste from house renovations.

The service can be provided only to those homes that have a front garden area where large and bulky items can be placed out of harms way to those walking along pavements.

Leaving items on the pavement is not permitted in any circumstances because this poses risks to passers by.

We cannot accept any hazardous waste, like chemicals or asbestos. For more information on the safe disposal of these materials, please visit the hazardous waste page.
