Bulky items can be a pain to dispose of. No matter whether it is an old mattress, a broken washing machine, or off-cuts of wood from your latest DIY project, it can sometimes be difficult to figure out how to get rid of bulky waste in a way that is responsible, safe, and convenient.

 What are bulky waste collections?

A bulky waste collection is a special waste removal service offered by local councils, charities and private waste contractors, including Skoup.  This service allows for the removal of large and bulky household items from domestic, residential and commercial properties. 

At Skoup, we offer a bulky waste collection service, making it easier to clear large items without the additional stress of having to figure out how you are going to fit them across the back seat of your car.

How to dispose of large items?

Getting rid of big and bulky items such as sofas, mattresses or fridges can be a difficult and long process. Local councils and charities offer large item collections across the country, but there could be restrictions on the type or condition of the items or you could end up waiting for up to a month to have your waste collected.  

It is also important to note that due to high demand, not all local councils can guarantee that your large waste will be diverted from landfill or recycled. 

Being part of Biffa, one of the UK’s best known and most trusted brands, Skoup can collect your bulky waste items from almost all locations across the UK -at the moment you can book a Bulky Waste service with us in Greater London, Birmingham & Leicester.

Why choose Skoup for your bulky waste needs?

Skoup's Bulky Waste Collection service provides a practical, affordable, and swift solution to bulky waste removal and collections that make them suitable for a large number of different situations. Ideal for large household items, like mattresses and larger pieces of unwanted furniture, vans offer a swift and efficient answer to the problem of needing bulky waste removed from your property.
One of the biggest benefits of a van based bulky waste collection service, like that of our service Van It, is that it offers same day collection if booked before 12 noon. This means that it is possible to get rid of waste within hours, rather than having to wait for the delivery and collection of a skip, or queue for the local tip. Moreover, you can also save money with Skoup - if you choose to use our new Bulky Waste Pay Per Item service instead of booking a man and a van waste removal service, you don't have to pay for van space you might not use.

Bulky Waste Collections during Coronavirus (COVID-19):

As so many of us are working from home now, the amount of bulky waste from households is getting higher day by day. It has become a lot harder to dispose of your bulky waste quickly or efficiently, most items not being recycled as much as they used to.

Even though waste disposal is classified as a key service, many recycling centres had to shut down for the public to avoid attracting too many people in one place according to social distancing rules. In addition to this, some local councils have been forced to reduce or completely stop their bulky waste collection services.

If you have any large waste to dispose of, at this time the most beneficial option would be to use a private contractor like Skoup to remove your bulky waste. Depending on the amount of waste you have or how quickly you need it removed, you can choose between a man and van waste removal service or a skip hire service.

If you decide to book a service with us, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to keep yourselves as well as our team safe. To minimise the risks for both of you, please: 

  • Place all your waste outside of your home
  • If you need to dispose of any loose waste or items such as gloves or masks, please place them in tied shut bin bags
  • Break large items down where possible as currently we aren’t always able to send out a two-man crew.
