Bulky waste collection in West Dorset
Get larger unwanted household items such as fridges, washing machines, old beds and sofas collected from your home for a small fee.
If you have an item that may be suitable for reuse, try a furniture reuse centre before arranging for it to go to landfill. They accept furniture, electrical appliances, small household items, soft furnishings and textiles.
If you are unable to take these items to the Household Recycling Centre yourself, we can collect and dispose of this waste for you for a small charge.
The Dorset Waste Partnership provides this service through a contractor in the West Dorset area.
