Bulky waste collection

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. 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.

Tel. (01202) 679350
Email. bulkyservice@dorsetreclaim.org.uk

Opening Hours:

  • Mondays to Thursdays: 8.30am - 4.30pm
  • Fridays: 8.30am - 4.00pm
  • Closed on Bank Holidays
