If you are looking to dispose of unwanted bulky household items, we offer a collection service from domestic properties within Kirklees.

This service is not available for businesses or commercial properties, if you require a collection please go to Trade waste.

Using a private company

Follow the SCRAP code if you choose to use a private firm to collect your waste:

Suspect

Beware of rogue waste carriers. Reputable companies do not usually make direct approaches. If you doubt whether someone is a legitimate waste carrier, do not allow them to take your waste.

Check

Ask for their waste carrier registration details, and verify them by checking they are licenced:

Note down the registration number of the vehicle used to take your waste away.

Refuse

Refuse unsolicited offers to have any rubbish taken away. Always carry out your own research and choose who you wish to approach.

Ask

Always ask what exactly is going to happen to your rubbish and seek evidence that it is going to be disposed of appropriately. A legitimate, professional waste carrier who wants your business should not object to being asked reasonable questions.

Paperwork

Make sure you get a proper receipt containing the written information for your waste. This should include what has been removed and where it will be going. Make sure the company or trades person's details are included.

About your items

Items must:

  • be placed outside your property from 7am the next working day. We aim to collect your item within 8 weeks, but this may be longer during peak periods.
  • be presented within the boundary of your property and in the location where you tell us they are on the form. Collection staff will not enter homes, sheds, garden outbuildings or garages.
  • be free standing.
  • not contain any hazardous materials.
  • be safe - for example securely taping up doors and loose wires.

Larger items, such as fridges and wardrobes must be emptied and not contain other waste materials or items.

Reclining sofas - we advise these are broken up (for example back rest and seat separated from the base). They can't be taken in one piece due to its heaviness.

We will not collect fridges and freezers from commercial properties. We only collect household fridges and freezers from domestic properties.

Mattresses should be covered to prevent them from getting wet prior to collection.
