Southwark residents can have bulky waste such as old furniture, fridges and other large household items collected free of charge.
Each resident is allowed to have one free collection per calender month for up to a maximum of 15 items. Each item must be listed when requesting the collection, as collectors will only pick up what is on the list. E.g. 2 wardrobes, 1 bed base and 1 mattress = 4 items.
Currently there is a 7 day wait for bulky collections. You can request the next available date or select a preferred day of the week.
You don't have to be at home when the collection is carried out, but you must make sure the item is in a place where it can be easily found and removed.
You can arrange a collection by phoning 020 7525 2000

Note: if you leave bulky items out without arranging a collection this is flytipping and can result in a fine.
