Shropshire Council

Request a bulky waste collection

Please note that the team won't be able to collect from inside any property or even outbuildings such as garages. The team collecting the items will use a bio-hygiene spray on each item they are collecting to make it safe. This will brown customers' grass if it falls onto the grass, so if you are storing the items for collection on the grass please ensure that you put a covering underneath the items if they are worried about this. Only touch points will be sprayed and that it is not hazardous to pets etc. Please find attached to this page the COSHH sheet detailing the safety of the chemical used once.

If you have large / bulky items which are too big for your bin, rather than throw them away you could get someone local to collect them for free simply by offering them as 'free to a good home' using one of the following networks:

You could also consider advertising them on eBay.

Another alternative for having them collected is to offer to donate them to your local furniture re-use scheme.

Shropshire's three repair cafes aim to help people fix items for free to avoid waste and to build a sense of community.

You can take large / bulky items of household waste to one of our household recycling centres free of charge. You will need a permit if you're using a trailer or van.
