Bulky item collection service

Bulky items, furniture and household appliances can be taken to one of Sheffield's five Household Waste Recycling Centres or a collection can be arranged for certain items from your property.

Household Waste Recycling Centres

Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) are a good place to take your unwanted furniture and electrical items for recycling and reuse.

Bulky waste collection service

A bulky waste collection can be arranged for certain items from your property. This is a good option for large items that you can't take to the HWRC. Please note that charges may apply.

We have three categories for the removal of bulky items:

1. Sheffield Housing Service and Housing Association Tenants

If you are a tenant of Sheffield City Council, Great Places, Pennine, Sanctuary and Manchester Methodist there is no charge* for the removal of your household bulky waste. The cost of the service is paid for through your rent payment.

Once booked, collections will take place within 7 working days.

Contact your local housing office if you need more than 12 items to be collected.

*Please note that Sheffield City Council, Manchester Methodist tenants are limited to one collection in any twelve month period. Tenants of ACIS are limited to one collection of up to 9 items in any twelve month period. Additional collections will be charged the same amount as private tenants and householders.

2. Private Tenants and Householders

There is a collection charge based on the number of  items that need collecting. 

         Number of bulky items               Price (including VAT)

3. More than 12 items or items of a non-domestic nature

There is a chargeable service for the removal of items of a non-domestic nature (fixtures & fittings inc baths). This is a MINIMUM charge of £58.50(incl VAT) and may require a manager to visit and provide an estimate of charges. The only type of bath that we can't take (unless it is broken up) is a cast iron one.

If you require a collection of more than 12 items then a visit by a manager may be required before we are able to provide an estimate. If you are a Sheffield City Council tenant and require more than 12 items to be collected then please contact your local housing office.
