We collect furniture as part of the Bulky Waste Collection Service 

​City of London residents (living in the Square Mile) can make use of the City's Bulky Waste Collection services for large household items. Go to the find your local council website to find out which local authority you live in.

What counts as bulky waste?

Items such as furniture, carpets, bikes, televisions, cookers, fridges, washing machines and general waste contained in sacks can all be taken. We do not take any trade, garden or building materials and are unable to collect builders / contractors material.

How does the bulky collection work?

Items suitable for reuse

For information on the removal of unwanted furniture and electrical items, please call the City of London Contact Centre on 020 7606 3110.

If your items are in good condition, we can provide advice on how to arrange a reuse collection. Please be aware that charges may apply.

Items not suitable for reuse

If you need to dispose of items which are not suitable for reuse, please call the City of London Contact Centre on 020 7606 3110 to arrange a collection by our waste contractor Amey Ltd.

Collections are made on Monday and Thursday between 8am-4pm. You can't book specific timeslots.

Collection crews are not permitted, under any circumstances, to enter a property so your items must be left in front of your door but not obstructing any passageway, or in the bulky waste collection area if your building has one.

Is there a fee for the collection?

There is a £31 charge for up to three items or ten standard bags to be collected from your property. Collections made from specific ground-floor collection points on City estates are free of charge. Contact your Estate Office for details of your collection points.

What if I have additional items?

Each collection is for up to three items or ten bags. If you want to have between four and six items collected there will be an additional £31 charge, totalling £62.

How do I pay?

Payments for the City of London bulky waste collection can be made using debit card or credit card by calling our Contact Centre on 020 7606 3110.

If you want to comment on our Bulky Waste Collection Service email recycling@cityoflondon.gov.uk or telephone 020 7606 3110. We aim to respond within three working days.​
