How does Bradford waste removal work?

Get a free quote for whatever type and amount of rubbish you want collecting in Bradford. Tell us where from and when for a tailored no obligation quote. After your waste removal is booked, we’ll send out one of our purple trucks or vans with a couple of our team on the agreed date.

They’ll come to your home or business on time and lift your waste into the vehicle. All labour is included, so you don’t need to worry about carrying any big and bulky items. If you’ve got waste that needs more than two people, please let us know in advance so we can plan accordingly.

Once all your rubbish is loaded up, our licensed waste carriers will drive it to a nearby waste transfer station in Bradford. Here everything will be assessed and sorted based on its waste type. Similar materials will be sent for recycling alongside the same materials, while some waste may be incinerated. The exact disposal method depends on the waste type.

Household waste recycling centres in Bradford

There are eight household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Bradford. These are for the use of Bradford District residents to dispose of items that don’t fit in domestic general waste or recycling bins. You need a resident permit to visit any Bradford HWRC in a car and a van permit if you use a van, pickup, or trailer (over 1.5m).

You can’t take commercial or trade waste to any HWRC in Bradford, but there are two waste transfer stations where you can dispose of business waste. These are at Bowling Back Lane and Keighley HWRCs. Charges apply and you must be a licensed waste carrier to dispose of business waste at either site.

Many supermarket, council, and some other car parks in Bradford also have recycling banks for smaller and specific waste types, such as glass and textiles. Find your nearest recycling bank in Bradford.

Bradford recycling charities

Many charities and organisations in Bradford accept household items in good condition that can be reused. It’s a more sustainable way to get rid of old furniture, clothes, bikes, electricals, and other items. There are also online services local to Bradford where you can sell or give away such items rather than recycling or disposing of them.

This all helps reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill and means less energy and resources are required to get rid of such waste. A few places where you can donate, sell, or give away items in Bradford include:

  • British Heart Foundation – their furniture and electrical store accepts many such items in decent condition with a free collection service for bulky items.
  • Keighley Furniture Project can collect most white goods and furniture for reuse, upcycling, and recycling in the Keighley and Skipton area.
  • Newlands Furniture Service – accepts bric-a-brac and furniture with a collection service for large items within 15 miles.
  • RSPCA – the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District Branch offers free collections of big items and eight large bags to sell in 10 shops across the region.
  • Sandale Community Trust – take old clothes, electricals, and other unwanted items to sell in the shop and support the local community.
  • Bradford RePaint – the organisation recycles and redistributes excess paint for charities, community groups, and the public at a low cost.
  • MCF Bikery – supports the Margaret Carey Foundation by selling refurbished bikes. Donate your old bike or bicycle parts of any size or condition to either centre in Bradford or Shipley.
  • Scraptastic – a scrap store in Shipley that accepts all sorts of items. Send a photo of your waste first and they’ll let you know if they can use it.
  • Freecycle and Freegle – search local Bradford listings for places to offer your items to Bradford residents for free.

Bradford rubbish removal FAQs

  • Is using a skip for rubbish removal in Bradford a bad idea?

    To use a skip in Bradford you need space on your private property or a permit to place it on a public road outside your home or business. It also takes longer to deliver and remove the skip, can be more expensive, and is less cost-effective if you don’t fill the entire skip.

    Our man and van rubbish removal service ensures you only pay for the amount and type of waste you need to get rid of. Plus, there’s no permit required, or extra time and space needed to deliver to place a skip anywhere.


  • What happens to my rubbish after it’s removed in Bradford?

    The type of waste we remove from your home or business and where you’re based affects what happens to it. We aim to recycle or reuse all rubbish, diverting as much as possible away from landfill. Some of your rubbish may go to a waste transfer station at Bowling Back Lane or Keighley HWRCs.

    Your rubbish will be sorted and separated by type and material before it’s recycled or disposed of responsibly. The recycling or disposal method depends on the specific material and items. Either way, you’ll receive a free duty of care certificate as proof of its responsible disposal.


  • How do I report fly-tipping in Bradford?

    Fly-tipping in Bradford is a big problem, with 16,285 incidents recorded in the last year. Bradford Council spent more than £125,000 clearing up big incidents across the city too. If you spot fly-tipping near your home, business, or anywhere else around the city you can report it online to Bradford Council.
