Collection of bulky items

Bulky Matters is a partnership between Blackpool Council and the charity Furniture Matters, which aims to transform Blackpool's bulky waste into a reusable resource to benefit the community.

The service is available to residential addresses only*. Collections can be booked for a morning, afternoon or an evening with a choice of a number of collection slots. There are also some weekend slots available. Wherever possible, items will be collected from inside your home as this increases the chance of the item being re-used.

The service collects the following household items: 

  • Furniture, icluding bed frames and mattresses
  • Soft furnishings
  • Domestic electrical appliances
  • Kitchen items
  • ICT equipment
  • Toys/games and bicycles

These will then be distributed to local people therefore reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill and helping those who need support.
