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.
