Bulky item collection: Ashford Borough Council

Bulky item collection

We will collect bulky domestic waste including furniture, white goods, electrical appliances and most other items that you would expect to take with you if you were moving house. Please note that we cannot take DIY materials or builders' waste. Examples of what would be considered builders waste would be:

  • Bricks
  • Concrete
  • Other construction material waste including plasterboard and similar broken up fixtures and fittings made from such materials

Items need to be out by 7am on the day of collection. Items need to be clearly visible at the front of the property abutting the highway ready to be collected at any time during the day.


There is a minimum charge of £23.00 (for the collection of up to 4 items) required at time of booking. The booking may be cancelled or amended. If it is cancelled up to 2 working days before the collection date, a full refund will be provided. If the booking is cancelled less than 2 working days before the collection due date the minimum £23.00 payment will not be refunded. The overall cost will be based on the number and volume of items being collected.
