Get rid of a large unwanted item

Before you ask us to collect an unwanted item, can you get rid of it another way?

Pick up from your home

We can collect up to four items of bulky waste from you at a cost of £42 per collection (excluding builder's rubble, bricks, concrete, paving flags and other heavy items and gas bottles).

For more than four items or to arrange a collection from commercial premises, one of our environmental co-ordinators will visit you to quote an individual price. We aim to remove the items within seven to 14 days, including weekends.

For more information or to arrange a collection, please telephone us on 0161 793 2500.

Items requiring special handling arrangements

Please be aware that the following items require a separate collection, which will incur an additional charge of £42, as there are restrictions for either legal reasons or because the items are classed as hazardous. These are:

  • Asbestos
  • Tyres
  • Gas canisters
  • Fluorescent lights
  • Sun bed tubes 
  • Fridges/freezers
  • Washing machines
  • Dishwashers
  • Tumble dryers
  • Ovens
  • Other large domestic appliances

For more information on how to dispose of these items visit the Recycle for Greater Manchester website or call 0161 793 2500.
