Book a large item collection

Before throwing away your household items that are still usable, please consider donating them. Organisations like the Abacus Furniture Project in Sevenoaks, run by West Kent, the YMCA Furniture Store in Tonbridge, and community groups such as Sevenoaks Freegle welcome good but unwanted items for reuse rather than disposal.

If your items are unable to be donated, we offer a competitively priced, large item collection service. We can collect a maximum of 10 items.

Our collection costs are as follows:

  • 1 item - £25
  • 2 items - £30
  • 3 to 4 items - £40
  • 5 to 10 items - £55
  • Corner sofas - £30 each
  • White goods - £25 each
  • Large American style fridges and freezers - £45 each

Some of the items we can collect include:

  • Furniture
  • Beds
  • Mattresses
  • White goods (such as cookers, fridges, freezers etc.)

Items we are unable to collect include:

  • Televisions
  • Furniture or doors containing glass
  • Gas canisters
  • Plasterboard

This service is only available to households.

After you have booked, make sure all items are placed outside your property boundary by 7am on your usual waste collection day. Collections take place between 7am and 4pm.
