Bulky Item / Bulky Waste Collection

Have you got large items to be removed which could be recycled?

Many items we throw away haven't reached the end of their useful life.  Why dispose of an item when someone else could re-use it?  There are a number of organisations in Gloucester that take bulky household items that are in good condition and conforming with fire regulations.

You could contact one of the organisations below to see if they could recycle your unwanted items.  Go to Recycle for ​Gloucestershire for more information on recycling.

Where and when to leave your items

Our Customer Services officers will advise you where to leave your items for collection.  Normally, this will be in the same place as you leave your refuse / recycling bins for collection.  At the same time, you will also be advised of the date of the collection.

You can dispose of these and many other items, free of charge, at the Hempsted Household Recycling Centre.
