Bulky waste collection

Coronavirus update

New bulky waste bookings have been suspended until further notice. Norse South East will complete existing requests provided that the waste is left outside your property for the crew to collect.

Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) and textile banks in Hampshire are now closed.

How can I dispose of large household items?

If you have large household items to dispose of, there are a number of charitable organisations that may be able to assist.

Many of the things we no longer need can either be put to good use by someone else. If your item is in good condition try using the Smart Living Reuse Directory to find a furniture reuse charity near you.

Alternatively, if you have large item that cannot be donated or reused elsewhere, we offer a chargeable bulky household waste collection service. 

This service has been suspended until further notice due to coronavirus.

What large household items can be collected?

Items for collection must be clearly accessible on foot, nothing must be obstructing access. Council staff are not permitted to enter premises and if you live in a flat above ground level, all items must be brought down to an agreed collection point on ground level. Lift or stairs can not be used.

Items such as ovens, TVs, computers, furniture (including carpets, beds and mattresses), bulk timber (almost anything that won't fit into a wheeled bin) can be collected as long as it can be moved by two council staff.

What large household items cannot be collected?

We will not take garden waste as part of this service, however we do offer a garden waste service.

No builders rubble or soil will be collected. Small quantities should be taken to one of your local recycling centres.

Larger quantities of rubble and soil, even if carried out as a DIY project, are actually commercial waste and the disposal needs to be arranged using a commercial waste company. The Yellow Pages and Project Ingra has a list of contractors providing this service.
