Bulky and scrap collections

Other ways to get rid of bulky items

Before you throw away an item that's still usable, why not consider donating it to a charity who can ensure it reaches someone who needs it - from a functioning fridge, through to an old sofa. 

Visit a local household recycling centre

If you can transport your items, visit one of our neighbourhood recycling centres (or tips), where you can recycle bulky items including turf and soil, bricks and rubble, fridges and freezers, car batteries and more.

Visit the Staffordshire Waste Partnership site to find your nearest household recycling centre.

Retailer recycling schemes

If you are buying new white goods (such as fridges and freezers, or even large items of furniture) speak to your new supplier and see if they can remove your old item.

Sometimes this will be offered free of charge and other times they may charge a small fee.
