If you do decide that you want Rother Council to arrange for a collection, please note:

Terms and Conditions

  • We do not carry out house clearances.
  • The bulky waste collection service is non-refundable and are not amendable once booked.
  • Items for collection must be presented outside, at the front of the property by 7 am on the scheduled collection day.
  • If your collection point is on a different street to your address, i.e. the frontage of your property faces onto a different street to your actual property address, you must advise this in the location notes of your booking by advising the location and street your items will be presented on.
  • Items must be clearly visible from a roadside position. The crew are not expected to search a property to try and locate items which may be partially hidden from view.
  • Items should be presented away from other items of your property to avoid confusion and ensure the crew can find the item(s) easily.
  • Please do not cover items over with sheets, it doesn’t matter if the items get wet as they are going for disposal. If you wish for items to be reused, then you are better giving them away or selling them second-hand.

  • Items must be at ground level, collections will not be made up a flight of steps or using a lift.

  • White goods should not contain food waste or other waste items. Freezers should be fully defrosted.
