Bulky waste and electrical items

Do you have a large item such as a piece of furniture or a fridge you wish to dispose of? If so we offer a chargeable Bulky Household Waste Collection Service.  This service is operated by our Contractors (Suez).

Before throwing something away, please try other options such as offering it to friends, neighbours, or people near you via a service like Freegle. You don't want it - but someone else might!  Freegle is an online platform that helps people give and get items for free in their community.  It's easy and free to join your local group in Maldon

Items such as furniture, bikes, unwanted presents and toys can be posted online and sometimes within an hour they have been collected from your property.  Making it an easy and quick way to get rid of your items and meaning less waste in your bin and saving you a trip to the local recycling centres. You can find out more about local groups on the love essex website.

If the item is in working order and in good condition you could also consider donating to charity or to one of the reuse projects operating in the county.

Alternatively you could advertise good quality items in the local paper, shops, supermarket or take them to your local Recycling Centre for Household Waste. By doing this you will help us to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill and protect our local environment.
