Bulky or Awkward Items
Some items may be too good to throw away - so before you book a bulky collection why not consider whether your item can be reused - either by friends or family, or by a local charity.
Charitable organisations can often collect and reuse good quality unwanted household items. For more information please see our Waste Minimisation - Reuse section.
If, however, an item cannot be reused then there are two options available:
- The item can be deposited at a HWRC - don't forget some materials, for example wooden furniture, can be recycled. Please talk to a Recycling Advisor on site. For more information on HWRC access and opening hours please click here.
- Cory Environmental can provide a chargeable kerbside collection of bulky/awkward items for residents who are unable to either donate items to charity or take them to a Household Waste Recycling Centre.
How do I arrange a collection?
|Arrange a bulky waste collection online here.|
Items are accessible and placed at the front edge of your property
- Payment should be made before presenting your item for collection. Please do not present items too far in advance as they are likely to attract fly-tipping and littering
- Fridges/freezers are defrosted, with any shelves removed and presented at the side
For further information regarding what can be booked in for collection, prices and arranging payment please see the further pages below.
Residents unable to book a collection online can contact Southend-on-Sea Borough Council on 01702 215006 to arrange a collection.
