We do not remove bedding, clothing or bags of household waste on bulky collections

We are now able to collect the items from inside your property and will reuse as many items as possible in Bolton.

How much does the collection service cost?

  • £30 for up to 5 items
  • £60 for 6 to 10 items
  • £90 for 11 to 15 items

Only have a couple of items?

If you and your neighbour only have a couple of items that need removing, why not do a joint bulky waste order and share the cost?
