Household waste - Collections for large items, fridges and freezers

Last Updated:

Bulky waste services & Coronavirus

We have resumed our bulky waste collection service from Monday 4 May.

If you have bulky, household items to dispose of, and you are not able to store them on your property until the recycling centres reopen, you can now book a bulky waste collection via the link at the bottom of this page.

In order to protect the front line waste collection services and to adhere to current Government guidance on social distancing measures, the Saturday bulky service continues to be suspended until further notice:

Further changes to services may need to be introduced. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Further information about how Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council is responding to the situation.

Before throwing away household items, such as electrical goods or bulky furniture, that are still of good quality think about ways of re-using or donating your items to local charities.

Bulky waste and fridge/freezer collection service

We collect up to 6 items of bulky waste including fridges/freezers, from outside your property.

There is a charge of £55.00 (as of 1 April 2020) for up to 6 bulky items, including fridge/freezers. If you only have a fridge/freezer for collection, the charge is reduced to £33.00. Payment can only be taken via credit or debit cards.

We can only collect the items listed at the time of booking, they must be out for collection by 7am on the day of collection.

Please read our refund policy. If you are unable to make payment in this manner please contact us to discuss alternative methods of payment.

If you are in receipt of Council Tax Reduction benefit you may be eligible for a collection at a reduced charge of £15.50 per collection. This reduced rate is limited to one collection every three months.

We can collect most bulky household items that you would normally take with you when moving house, but we cannot collect very heavy or large items such as pianos, concrete, large water tanks, oil storage tanks, engines and engine oil, liquid material, tyres, toxic materials or builder's waste and rubble.
