Refuse and Recycling - Bulky Waste Collection Service

If you have a large item such as a piece of furniture or a fridge that you wish to dispose of, Mendip Distrct Council offer a Bulky Collection Service at a charge - which is not refundable if cancelled by payee.

What They Will Collect

They will collect a maximum of 5 household items such as a 3-piece suite, carpets, chairs, bed, mattress etc. The general rule is, if you would take it with you when you move house, it is likely to be suitable for this service. (Please Note a 3-piece suite is classed as 3 items and a bed & mattress would count as 2). For further details see the Bulky Waste Collectibles List below. If you have an item for disposal that is not on this list, you may need to make your own arrangements for its disposal. Please contact Customer Services for further advice.
