Everything You Need to Know About Bulky Waste Collection

Everything to Know About Bulky Waste Collection

Whether you’re moving into a new business location or carrying out repairs or renovations on an existing lot, you’re going to have some large items that need to be disposed of. Throughout the renovation, repair or moving process, you’ll find that your business is accumulating a lot of waste, whether it’s organic, liquid or recyclables. Each type of waste must be disposed of in the correct way, but it’s not just about the kind of waste you have. It’s also about the size.

Waste over a certain size is considered bulky waste, and is typically waste that is too large to fit in a regular wheelie bin. You can imagine how inconvenient it is to be stuck with large items that you can’t dispose of very easily. But this is where bulky waste collection services are a lifesaver for businesses.

Rather than trying to tackle bulky waste disposal alone, a waste management company like Better Waste can organise bulky waste collections with ease. Thanks to our waste management partners up and down the country, no matter where you are, we can help you get rid of large items.

So if you have large items that you need to dispose of safely and securely, a bulky waste collection service may be just what you need. But before we look at why bulky waste collections are so handy for businesses, let’s look at what makes up this kind of waste disposal.

What Items Qualify for Bulky Waste Collection?

When it comes to bulky waste disposal, it can be difficult to grasp what exactly constitutes ‘bulky waste’. Let’s look at a few examples.

Electrical Appliances and White Goods

This is one of the most common types of bulky waste that businesses need to dispose of. Whether you’re renovating your restaurant’s kitchen or moving out of an office space, you may have any of the following to dispose of:

  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Dishwashers
  • Televisions
  • Cookers


Similarly, many commercial moves and renovations will include getting in new furniture. Old, soiled or broken furniture can also be disposed of with bulky waste collection. This includes:

  • Soiled carpets
  • Sofas
  • Tables
  • Chairs


You can also dispose of old or damaged bikes with a bulky waste collection.

And What Items Don’t Count as Bulky Waste?

Whilst our bulky waste collection services cover a wide range of large waste items, there are some things that cannot be collected in a bulky item disposal.

Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste such as chemicals that are flammable, toxic or corrosive that pose a threat to the environment cannot be collected as bulky waste. This type of waste needs to be disposed of in a controlled environment.

Paint Cans and Pressurised Containers

We also cannot take paint cans, batteries and pressurised containers in a bulky waste collection as they need to be disposed of separately from general waste products.

Green Waste

We aren’t able to collect large amounts of organic waste such as food or garden waste either.

Benefits of Bulky Waste Collection

It Saves You Time and Energy

The most obvious benefit of bulky waste collection is that you don’t have to worry about handling a large item removal by yourself. By hiring a bulky waste collection specialist, who has the means, skills, and time to handle your bulky item removal, you save yourself a lot of time and effort.

If you were to handle your own bulky item disposal, you would need to source a skip or appropriate disposal bin, or hire a van and transport your waste to the right location to be disposed of. But when it comes to fast, simple and safe bulky waste disposal, the easiest approach is definitely to go for a waste disposal specialist.

It Saves the Environment

Entrusting your large items to a bulky waste collection service also means that you can trust that your waste won’t harm the environment. As we mentioned before, not having waste management knowledge means you could unintentionally be at risk of potentially disposing of your waste incorrectly, which would cost you, and the environment. However, bulky waste removal services are experts in waste disposal, so will know how exactly to dispose of your large items.

And here at Better Waste, we only work with partners who dispose of their waste collections safely, responsibly, and in line with environmental laws.
