Bulky waste waiting for pickup

A lot of changes have been announced to Kirklees Council’s waste collections and the types of wastes they will be able to accept at household waste recycling centres. Have a look at our bulky waste collections page for the latest info

As of May 2016, Kirklees council have begun charging residents a minimum of £5 per bulky item, and £20 for some white goods. The council is experiencing massive backlogs in requests for bulky waste collections, making people wait up to 8 weeks before they can collect the furniture

It can be difficult to deal with bulky items like furniture or appliances that need removing from your property, they can be extremely heavy and too big to handle on your own, or even with someone there to help you. Kirklees council offer bulky waste collections but they do have some restrictions

1) The collection staff are not allowed into properties including outhouses, garages or sheds – this means that you have to remove those really heavy and bulky items from your own property.

2) The items to be removed must be placed outside of the property at the time the order for collection is placed with the council – the council then have two weeks to come and pick the items up. Leaving the items on the pavement outside the property could cause an obstruction or the items could become water damaged from being left out in the rain, making them not suitable for re-use.
