Bulky Waste Collections are a range of low cost collection services operated by Dorset Reclaim across the region that recycle, dispose, and where possible, reuse, unwanted household goods that may have reached the end of their useful life.



If you want to dispose of big household items like fridges, TVs, washing machines, sofas, beds and mattresses and can’t take them to your local household recycling centre, you can book a bulky waste collection with us.

Where possible, we will refurbish, reuse and recycle these items in order to prevent them from heading to landfill. It’s a cost effective, and professional service that makes it easy for you to dispose of your bulky household goods, used furniture and white goods in an environmentally friendly way.

If you pay your Council Tax in any one of the five areas that form part of Dorset Council (East Dorset, North Dorset, West Dorset, Purbeck and Weymouth & Portland) then we offer the service on their behalf.

If you live in the areas covered by BCP Council or the New Forest District Council, then we now provide this service directly to you.

What are the charges?

£36 for the first item, and £8 for every item thereafter. Larger, multiple or unusual items may be charged at a lower or higher rate. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Depending on the quality of the items you are looking to have collected and whether they can be re-used, there may or may not be a charge.
