SKDC is reminding residents to use the council’s home collection service to correctly dispose of bulky household items.

Residents can request the service by calling 01476 406080 to arrange for a specific home collection which is charged at £12 for the first item and £6 each for all other

The council also advises residents to donate usable furniture or other items to charity shops, many of whom are also able to collect items from households.

SKDC’s portfolio holder for environment Councillor Nick Craft said: “We know transporting items to our Household Waste and Recycling Centres is not always possible for all residents.

“If they’re still usable why not donate them to charity? Otherwise, the home collection service is here to help you dispose of goods in the correct manner.

“We advise residents to ring and arrange a collection and we can take away your unwanted electrical items and household furniture so you can do your part to help keep your street and neighbourhood clean and tidy.”

Once payment has been made, SKDC will collect the item from outside a property on a day agreed with residents at the time of booking.

Fridges and freezers are charged separately at £12 each due to the disposal costs of these items.

The council is also unable to collect radiators, builder’s rubble, bricks, concrete, paving slabs or garden furniture.

All bulky collections will be carried out by employees wearing an SKDC high visibility jacket driving an SKDC vehicle.

Alternatively, residents can use the Household Waste and Recycling Centre in Grantham to dispose of electrical or household goods.

Grantham’s Mowbeck Way facility is open Friday to Monday, 9am to 4pm every week.
