Old furniture can often be repaired or 'up-cycled' to be used again, by you or someone else. A toolkit full of hints and tips for upcycling is available.
If your item is clean and in good working order, and you would like to donate it to someone who may need it, please check for reuse and repair sites in your area. For further details of the Council's service, please use the links below.
Fareham Council provide a chargeable collection service for all homes in the Borough for bulky household items such as furniture and large household appliances. All items collected by the Council are disposed of.
Council collections are booked for Mondays (except for Bank Holidays). We require payment in advance. You should place items in an accessible place at the side
or back of your property.
Fridges and freezers can be collected for a charge of £17.00 per unit. Please call 01329 236100 to book a collection.
If you need help to clear a property, please telephone us on 01329 236100 so that we can estimate the cost of the work. We may need to visit the property first.

One item £33.00
Half a lorry load £74.00
Full lorry load £130.00
Fridge / freezer £17.00 (per item)
To get a quote for your bulky waste/house clearance collection you can complete our online quote request form or contact us on 01329 236100. We may need to visit first.
A full refund will be given if you contact us before 4pm on a Friday, if it is after this time you will be required to pay a £25 fee and we will refund the remaining amount to you.
We will not take away monitors, TVs, light strips, microwaves, asbestos, paint or other items not listed on the booking form. We do not collect kitchen units, rubble / concrete from DIY work (this should be taken to a household waste recycling centre). We do not collect green waste as you should use the fortnightly garden waste collection service.
If you are a commercial builder, you must dispose of your waste through a commercial waste contract. We operate a commercial waste service to help businesses collect and dispose of their commercial waste. For more information please contact us on 01329 236100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
