How Do I Dispose Of Bulky Waste?

How do I dispose of bulky waste?

(e.g. sofa, bed, mattress, cupboard)

Large bulky items, which you can’t rehome or fit in a car will fill a skip very quickly! And certainly not make the best use of the space and cost of a skip. As waste is often priced by volume and weight you may be able to find more cost effective solution by:

  • Using a waste transfer station; If you are a business you will need a Waste Carriers Licence, but unlike most local recycling centres (tips!) you can go in with private waste in a van. Most waste transfers stations will price by material and weight, so the volume does not matter, unlike a skip. Search for your local transfer station, and see our guide to using a transfer station (links).
  • Using a man and van service; Ensure they have a Waste Carriers Licence, get a quote for the disposal, and arrange a time. Prices can vary, so always get a couple of quotes first, or recommendations from satisfied customers. A van clearance will usually pay their disposal by weight, so will be less concerned as to the volume of the item collected.
