North East Lincolnshire Council

Bulky household waste

Bulky items/white goods are collected on a first come first served basis. This is an additional non statutory service supplied at a small charge to residents and is something we can only accommodate once every 2 weeks. There are occasions where peaks in demand means slots are booked quickly and waiting times increase. There is currently a ten week waiting list.

Residents who are unable to wait can take their items free of charge to the local Community Recycling Centres (Tip). There are two sites in the borough one is at
Gilbey Road, Estuary Way Grimsby and one at Queens Road, Immingham. If either is not suitable residents can contact a private commercial company to collect
their items.

Collection prices

White goods cost £10 each, with a maximum of 2 per household.

For all other bulky items costs are:

  • £10 each for up to two items
  • £45 for 3 – 5 items
  • £85 for 6 – 10 items
