How do I get rid of a mattress / sofa / fridge?

Household waste and recycling

If you want to arrange a special collection for large waste items you no longer have a use for - most councils will collect old sofas, fridges or washing machines for a fee.

Visit GOV.UK Special Collection web pages to find out which local authority you should contact to organise a collection. 

Your local authority are responsible for the collection and recycling of your household waste.  For more information and ideas on how to recycle more go to Recycle Now.

Your local authority can help you if you:

  • need a bulky waste collections, such as a sofa or fridge;
  • need a replacement bin or recycling box, if it is missing or is stolen; or
  • spot fly tipping in your area and want to report it.

For more information on what items go in each of your recycling bins in the Wakefield district, visit Wakefield Council's Recycling web page, or call Wakefield Council Contact Centre on 0345 8 506 506.
