Bulky waste collection charges

Charges for bulky waste collections

There is now a charge of £5 for each individual item uplifted. Items eligible for collection must be listed domestic items such as fridges, mattresses or pieces of indoor freestanding furniture. Fixtures and fittings or commercial waste cannot be collected.

Full details of what we can collect can be found on our bulky waste collections page.

Each household in East Lothian is entitled to one free uplift each calendar year. So if you have received a free uplift in September you would have to pay for any subsequent booked items until September the following year. Some items though, if no longer required but still in good and/or working condition, may be able to be donated for reuse and all items can be taken free of charge to one of our recycling centres.

Bulky waste collections can be booked online at anytime through myeastlothian. Find out more about myeastlothian and register online
