Bulky waste

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 External Hyperlink is available. 

Donate your item

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 External Hyperlink 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.

Collections

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.

Fridge freezers

Fridges and freezers can be collected but are charged individually (£17.00 per item) and separate from other bulk waste. Collections take place every other Monday.

House clearances

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.

Charges

Quotes will be given depending on the number of items you want removed. This list should give you an indication of the cost:

One item                  £33.00

Half a lorry load       £74.00

Full lorry load          £130.00

Fridge / freezer       £17.00 (per item)

Getting a quote / booking a collection

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.

Refunds

We will not give refunds for cancellations given to us after 12noon on Fridays.

Items we do not collect

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.

Commercial waste

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.
