Large item collections

We can collect large household items (such as old furniture or fridges) from your home. There is a £16 charge for this service and you need to be a Southwark resident.

You can make a booking from your MySouthwark account:

Sign in to MySouthwarkSign up to MySouthwark

You will have to leave the items at the agreed location by 6am on the collection date.

Service cost

We charge £16 for a collection of up to 10 items and there are no concessions available for this service. You will need to pay the charge with a valid credit or debit card during the booking process.

Don’t dump your waste!

It is illegal to dump bulky items or any other rubbish on public land and you could face a fine or imprisonment

Report dumped waste online now to make sure it is cleared and investigated quickly.

Other ways to dispose of your waste:

Check what we can collect

Check the list of items we can collect before making a booking. If it’s not on the list, we will not collect it.

Check if you can request the service

As a Southwark resident you can only request that we collect bulky waste from your own household. We don’t provide this service for:

  • businesses
  • households outside of Southwark
  • landlords and property managers
  • collection of hazardous waste

What happens after we receive your request

After receiving your online request and payment we will:

  • arrange the collection on your preferred weekday (waiting time for the service is up to 7 days)
  • send you a confirmation email with collection date and reference number within 24 working hours of receipt of payment
  • on the day we will collect the items specified in your booking.

Make changes or cancel your booking

You can’t make changes to your bulky waste collection request (e.g. alter the number of items) after the booking is confirmed. You can cancel the booking at any time but the fee is non-refundable. This is because vehicles and crews are allocated to each collection at the time of booking and there is a cost to the council.
