Bulky waste

We can arrange a collection for bulky items of household waste that are too big for your black bags such as beds, carpets, fridges, freezers and wardrobes.

All items collected are sorted for reuse or recycling by the Swansea Waste Action team.

All collections must be booked and paid for in advance. We will collect:

  • 1 to 3 items for £17
  • 4 to 6 items (maximum) for £34

If preferred you can donate reusable bulky items directly to our reuse shop, or to a local charity or reuse organisation.

Certain items can also be disposed of for free if taken to a household waste recycling centre.

If you are on income support, income related job seekers allowance, income related employment and support allowance or guaranteed pension credit you are entitled to a maximum of 3 collections of up to 3 items free of charge over a 12 month period.

Please note that items must be placed out on the kerbside for collection on the agreed date. The collection team is unable to enter the property.

Collections are usually made on the same day as your recycling and rubbish collections. We are currently booking 2 weeks in advance of collection. Once booked an email will be sent within 3 working days to confirm the collection date.

To ensure your items are collected you must:

  • Only put out the items you described when booking your collection.
  • Put the items out for collection on the kerbside between 7.00pm the evening before your collection and 7.00am on the morning of your collection day.
  • Keep items dry and don't leave them outside for a long time in all weathers. If you are leaving out an item that could absorb water (eg mattress or settee) then please cover them. Wet items may be too heavy to lift and will not be collected.

We will NOT collect:

  • Items which are too heavy to lift
  • From commercial (business) premises
  • Hazardous waste eg asbestos, car batteries, paint etc
  • Items containing glass or mirrors
  • External doors
  • Fixtures such as radiators
  • Bathroom suites
  • Boilers, gas bottles or oil tanks
  • Builders rubble

Cancellation policy

We require at least 24 hours' notice of cancellation as after that time the collection crew are committed to the collection and expenses have been incurred. Please note that if your collection day is on a Monday then we need to know by 12.00pm on the Friday before.
