What are bulky waste collections?
A bulky waste collection is a special waste removal service often offered by local councils, charities and private waste contractors, including here at Skoup. This service allows for the removal of large and bulky household items from domestic, residential and commercial properties with ease.
At Skoup, we offer a bulky waste collection service that has specifically been designed to make 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 or transport them to the local tip.
How to dispose of large items?
Getting rid of big and bulky items such as sofas, mattresses or fridges can be a difficult and drawn out process. Local councils and charities offer large or bulky item collections across the country, but there could be restrictions on the type or condition of the items. Alternatively, it is possible that you could end up waiting for up to a month to have your bulky waste collected.
A large number of councils will charge for their bulky waste collection; however, unlike with a private service, not all councils can guarantee that your waste will be diverted from landfill or recycled wherever possible. This is often due to high demand on their bulky waste collection services.

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.
