Special collection service for large household items

A special collection service is available for residents for up to 6 household items you would take with you when moving house not fixtures or fittings. Items include TVs, furniture and carpet (one piece of carpet counts as one item), fridges, freezers, cookers, washing machines, 3 piece suites and tumble dryers.

A bulky/special collection service is available to all domestic properties within the boroughs of Corby and Kettering. A maximum of 6 items can be collected on any one occasion.  This is a chargeable service.

These collections are only for items that you would take with you when you move house not fixtures or fittings. A list of items that will be accepted as part of this service is available on the Council’s website.  All items due for collection must be placed at the nearest access point to the road within your property boundary.  If items are left outside please ensure that they are covered in the event of rain.

When attending if items are considered too big or heavy for an operative we have the right to refuse the service.

Collection staff will not go onto private property to make collections unless there are exceptional circumstances, which have been agreed with the relevant department.

If items are not available for collection on the agreed date a fee may be charged for a return visit. 48 hours cancellation notice must be given for any unwanted collections. If notice is not given or operatives arrive at the premises and no items are presented for collection, refunds will not be issued.

From the 4th February 2019 charge of £23.00 is payable, if you are in receipt of Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit a reduced payment of £11.50* is payable.

To book a collection please contact the Street Scene Hotline on 01536 464242.
