COVID-19: Bulky waste is back

North East Lincolnshire Council is starting up its bulky collections again from Monday 4 May.

The service stopped in March due to the coronavirus outbreak but will be up and running again from early next month.

Households can make a booking now at www.nelincs.gov.uk/BulkyWaste or by calling 01472 326288 (option 4).

New safety measures are in place for the small team that delivers the service.

Crew members are working to social distancing guidelines, but this means they won’t be able to carry out any assisted collections.

Cllr Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for Environment and Transport at the Council, said:

“We had to suspend the service at the start of the coronavirus outbreak but we’re now in a position to bring it back.

“It’s a popular service and makes it easy for households to get rid of big and bulky items such as cabinets, washing machines, exercise bikes and garden furniture.

“We want to do everything we can to help people during the lockdown and the service will be running five days per week, instead of the usual three.”

Bulky waste prices

  • £20 for up to four items (excluding white goods)
  • £5 for any additional items, up to the maximum of 10 per order
  • £10 for each white good
  • £5 additional charge for the rapid collection service.
