Bulky Waste Collections
The service can be provided only to those homes that have a front garden area or a communal area where large and bulky items can be placed out of harm’s way.
If you live in a block of flats, place your items in your bulk store area if you have one, or where you would place your rubbish for collection.
You can take a wide range of items to Recycling Centres – find your nearest.
If your items would be of use to someone else, there are organisations which can collect them for you. See our Furniture reuse page for more info.
There is a fee of £25 for Veolia to collect up to four bulky items, such as furniture, from your home. Any additional items will be charged at £10 per item, up to a maximum of 10 items per collection.
All collections are booked through the Veolia Haringey Contact Centre:
- Tel: 020 8885 7700
- Web: Special collections query form (external link)
As a general rule, anything that you might take with you when moving home can be collected. We make every effort to recycle as many items as possible.
A full list of the items Veolia will collect can be found on the Veolia bulky waste FAQs page (external link), and a few common examples are shown below.
|Furniture||White Goods/WEEE (standard household appliances only)||Waste electrical (WEEE) goods|
