Bulky Waste Collection
Why not donate your bulky waste?
Some items are just too good to not be reused by someone. Before contacting the council why not consider donating your items to an organisation where they can be reused by someone in need. Some items can even be collected for free.
Hamelin Trust is a leading Essex based charity for supporting people with learning disabilities and their families. Donated items are processed through our reuse and recycling division which employs a number of adults with learning disabilities. Once checked and tested, they are sold though our charity shops to help fund our support for disabled children and adults throughout South Essex
Second Generations supplies furniture and electrical items at low cost mainly to people on reduced incomes, donations enable them to do this, collected items are refurbished, repaired and tested for safety and suitability. Contact:
