Bulky waste collections – Kirklees Council start charging from May 2016

As of May 2016, Kirklees Council will be implementing a charge for all bulky waste collections. This will be:

  • £5 per bulky item – e.g sofas, wardrobes, chest of drawers, beds, tables, chairs
  • £20 per electrical item – e.g microwaves, fridges, freezers, TVs

On top of this, anyone currently booking a bulky waste collection with the council will need to:

  • Carry all the items outside
  • Have the items outside their house for up to 6 weeks
  • Pay up front in advance

With the council beginning to charge for bulky waste collections and the cost of landfill increasing every year it won’t be long before the fees start to increase.

There are several changes in the works for waste services in Kirklees. From April 2016 household waste recycling centres won’t accept certain DIY wastes such as soil, rubble and plasterboard.

If you’re looking to get rid of some extra furniture, give us a call or send us an email for an obligation free quote.
