How does York rubbish removal work?
Rubbish removal in York works in different ways depending on the items you’re getting rid of and the service you need.

If you’re unsure of what’s best for you, speak to one of our friendly team and they’ll advise on the right solution.
For on-demand York rubbish removal we offer a man and van service. Let us know a time, date, and location and we’ll provide a speedy service, popping over to pick up your waste items, and then transporting them for recycling, where possible. This is ideal if you have limited space or only a few items to dispose of.
For bigger jobs such as house and office clearances in York or bulky items, we can send out one of our larger purple vans. These can hold more waste and provide efficient and cost-effective removals that require fewer trips than some small man in van operations.

about York HWRCs
Towthorpe and Strensall HWRC only accepts ‘non-chargeable’ household waste (this excludes brick, rubble, gas bottles, plasterboard, and asbestos). You also can’t use this site for commercial waste disposal in York. The site has a 1.9-metre height barrier in place, so if your vehicle is taller it’s best to use Hazel Court HWRC and check if you need a permit.
Charges apply to dispose of certain domestic waste at Hazel Court HWRC including bricks, rubble, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, plasterboard, and bonded asbestos. You also need a permit if you bring any household waste to the site in a trailer (maximum size of 3 metres by 1.8 metres – trailer bed size only).
Landlords can apply for permits to dispose of tenants’ waste. You must also register to dispose of commercial and trade waste at Hazel Court HWRC. You can only dispose of commercial waste on Mondays to Fridays between 8.30am to 4.30pm.
York recycling charities
Plenty of items thrown out by homes in York can be used by others rather than being sent for recycling or disposal. Donating to a charity or selling on a local York marketplace helps reduce waste, which is the most sustainable solution. These are a few charities and organisations working to make York a greener place:
- The Recycle Project – recover, recycle, and reuse all sorts of waste through sales, workshops, and other activities to offer them back to the local York community.
- The Community Furniture Store – this store in York collects furniture and other household goods for free and makes them available for resale to people on low incomes.
- Various charity shops – York is home to many charity shops that accept some household items. These include Age UK, Barnado’s, British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, Cancer Research, Macmillan Cancer Support, Martin House Hospice Shop, Oxfam, PDA Charity Shop, RSPCA York Shop, St. Leonard’s, Sue Ryder, The Alan Bott Charity, The Mind Shop, and York Samaritans.
How much can you get fined for fly-tipping in York?
The City of York Council can issue fines for anyone caught fly-tipping. This could be a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £400 or a fine via a successful prosecution of up to £50,000 and/or six months’ imprisonment. The City of York Council has the power to use surveillance equipment to monitor problem areas and take enforcement action against fly-tippers.
How often are household bins collected in York?
Every household in York has its non-recyclable waste bins collected once a fortnight. The exact day and time depend on your address. All waste should be placed in black bin bags inside your black household waste bin with the lid shut. You can report any missed bin collections in York to the council after 4pm on the collection day.
How do I ensure my York household bins are collected?
To ensure your household waste and recycling bins are collected by the City of York Council (or St Nicks for those in the city centre) you should first check your bin day. Use the online waste collection calendar to find the right day for your area.
Then place your bin at the front edge of your property any time between 7pm the day before and 7am on the day. If access codes or keys are required, you must inform the council of any changes.
