How bulky waste collection works in Wakefield

Request a free quote for bulky waste collection in Wakefield tailored to the type and amount of rubbish you need removing, where from, and when. We’ll provide a fixed price that includes labour fees. If you’re happy with the cost we’ll book a removal date and time that suits you.

One of our purple vans with a couple of our professional team will turn up on time. They’ll move all your bulky items and load them into the van, so you don’t have to worry about straining yourself or shifting furniture around tricky corners. Then it’ll be driven to a nearby waste transfer station.

All the bulky items will be checked, sorted, and sent for responsible disposal based on their type and condition. Electricals and appliances that work may be donated to a charity, while broken ones should be sent for recycling. Furniture in decent condition may be reused or recycled, while sofas containing persistent organic pollutants (POPs) will be incinerated following Environment Agency regulations.

Local recycling centres in Wakefield

You can take all sorts of bulky waste from your home to one of three main household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Wakefield – Wakefield, Glasshoughton, and South Kirkby HWRCs. Wakefield residents can dispose of household appliances, furniture, carpet, electronics, and other large items for free with proof of address or a permit.

Commercial bulky waste is not accepted at any of these HWRCs. When transporting your domestic bulky waste to any site you can use a car but need a commercial vehicle permit if you use a van, pickup, or minibus (or trailer bigger than 6ft x 4ft).

Wakefield Council also offers a bulky collection service for households. The service is only available for domestic properties in Wakefield and costs £30 with a maximum of three items removed per collection. It covers a wide range of appliances, electricals, furniture, and other bulky items but exclusions and specific requirements apply.
