Household bulky waste
Westminster City Council encourages our residents to reduce the amount of waste they produce, reuse items where possible and also to recycle their waste by using the Council's on street recycling facilities such as the small electrical appliance bins, clothes and shoes bins and the book recycling bins. Residents can also visit reuse and recycling centre at Smugglers Way in Wandsworth and dispose of larger items for free. Please visit the WRWA website for more information.

We can collect up to 10 large bulky household items as long as they can be lifted by two men and where access allows. We will collect from upper floors of a property but if you can bring it to ground level off the street that is preferred. Items collected include:
- Beds - Mattresses, Bedframes
- Washing Machines

This service is not able to take builders waste hazardous and clinical waste. If you have builders waste we advise that the contractor carrying out the works removes this waste. Small amounts DIY waste can be taken to Smugglers Way but for larger quantities you will need to contact a private waste contractor or you could search online for skip bags which are a cheaper and smaller scale alternative to skip hire.
