Bulky waste collection in Dorset

Get big household items like old fridges, sofas, TVs, beds and mattresses collected.

Householders are responsible for the lawful disposal of their waste, even after handing it to someone else. See our Tip-Off page for more information on fly-tipping and how you can keep yourself covered.


If you want to get rid of big household items like fridges, TVs, washing machines, sofas, beds and mattresses and can't take them to your local household recycling centre, you can book a bulky waste collection through Dorset Reclaim.

Depending on the quality of the items you are looking to have collected and whether they can be re-used, there may or may not be a charge. You can find out more information on the Dorset Reclaim website.

To discuss the item(s) you need collected and arrange a bulky waste collection, please contact Dorset Reclaim​ directly using the details below to speak to an advisor.
