What we collect
We collect any items (up to 9) which can reasonably be carried and lifted into a van by 2 people. We can arrange for a quotation from our collection contractor for larger or heavier items.
The bulky item must be located outside in the open air in an accessible place by 7am on the morning of collection and in an accessible position. The preferred location is at the front of the property.
If you put a bulky item out with your normal household rubbish or recycling the council will not collect it. The collection has to be pre-arranged and paid for before the items will be taken away.
Before throwing away household items, such as electrical goods or bulky furniture that are still of good quality, think about ways of re-using or donating your waste to local charities.
Please refer to: Re-Use and Avoiding Waste
If you are unable to find a way to re-use your items, the Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) at Pebsham (Hastings), Mountfield and elsewhere in East Sussex accept bulky items and waste which cannot be disposed of via your normal collection but you must be a domestic tax paying resident in East Sussex to use these sites.
