Bulky Waste Collections

How the service works

Crawley Borough Council can collect a variety of unwanted bulky items from your home.


If you require a bulky waste collection please phone 01293 438772 or come into the Town Hall.

The Bulky Waste Collection service operates every week day apart from Wednesdays and every other Thursday. Please note we cannot provide time collections.

Items must be outside, accessible and ready for collection by 7.30am on the date agreed at the time of booking.

How much does it cost?

Refunds: Refunds are only available if you contact us at least the day before your collection is due or if the council or its contractor are at fault.

Residents who are receiving benefits may qualify for one free collection every 12 months. This free collection is limited according to the size and number of items requiring collection up to a maximum amount of £40.40. Some benefits may be excluded.

We must always make a charge for fire damaged goods, baths (plastic only), sinks, toilets, kitchen units and radiators.

Alternative options

You can transport your own items to the Crawley Household Waste Recycling Site and dispose of them free of charge.

You can use a private contractor to collect and dispose of unwanted items. Ensure the contractor is a Registered Waste Carrier first.

You may be able to find homes for some of your unwanted items through a charity shop or a charity such as Debra .
