Getting rid of large or bulky items

Due to the coronavirus outbreak this service has been suspended until further notice. For updates visit the service changes webpage.


We can collect large or bulky items from households within the North Warwickshire area for a small charge. This service is not available to businesses and landlords.

We're working in partnership with Emmaus Coventry and Warwickshire to provide this service. Emmaus Coventry and Warwickshire are a local charity. Items which are reusable will be used by the charity or sold in their shop in Coventry. You can find out more about the charity on their website. Anything which cannot be repaired and/or used again will be disposed of responsibly.
