Please leave your item(s) out by 7am on your collection day (and no earlier than the night before). This can be where you usually put your bins.

Make sure your items are accessible. Our collection crew cannot enter properties, garages or sheds.

We only collect items that you have paid for, so please don't add extra rubbish. If an item is too heavy we may be unable to remove it.

Fenland District Council is a registered waste carrier, which means you can be sure that your waste is being disposed of safely and legally. You can view our Waste Carrier Registration on the Environment Agency website.

Other options

You could donate your items to a charity or social enterprise. Many gratefully accept:

  • Furniture
  • Working 'white goods' (e.g fridges or washing machines)
  • Electrical items
  • Soft furnishings (with the original fire retardant label attached)

The British Heart Foundation collects from Fenland properties for free.

You can also take your item(s) to a Household Recycling Centre. This is free for household waste.
