Book online to have household waste that is too big for the bin, such as broken furniture and dishwashers, collected from your home. We can also collect small waste electrical items for recycling free of charge when you book this service. This service is for residential properties only. We do not collect from businesses.
Fridges and freezer collections are booked separately.
If you think another local resident might want the item you want to get rid of, don't dump it, Freegle it and save the fee. Richmond Freegle enables local residents to exchange unwanted items free of charge. Please browse the free items currently available.
