Bulky waste collections

The bulky waste collection service is great if you have larger waste items that do not fit in your household waste bins.

If you can't bring your large waste items to our Recycling Centre, our team can collect your waste from your home.

Our bulky waste collection service is a paid for service and is available to all residents in Harrow.
