COVID-19: increasing pressure on waste services means possible delays. Our reuse and recycling centre is now closed. See latest service updates and advice here.

Bulky Waste Collections

Who can use the service?

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 £20 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.  

How to book

All collections are booked through the Veolia Haringey Contact Centre:
