Book a free pick-up for bulky items

We’ll collect old furniture, mattresses, whitegoods, electronics and other big household items you no longer need.

About 1 week – often sooner, depending on the scheduled date you select.

Project Status: When you need to do this

Pictures of some of the items we collect. The items are a couch, washing machine, tv and computer, mattress, bedframe and rug, barbecue, and bundled garden waste.

Check that your items can be collected

If your items are still in good and working condition, try to find a new home for them first. Find out more about re-use, repair and rehoming options.

Tips to manage booked collections in apartment buildings

Our system allows 1 booking for each item group per apartment building each week. Most apartment buildings arrange for the building manager or a key contact to book 1 pick-up on behalf of all residents.  

Where does it all go?

We recycle what we can and safely dispose of the rest.

  • Mattresses are sent to our contractor, who recycles up to 75% of mattress parts. Steel springs are recycled into products like metal roofing. Foam is turned into carpet underlay. Timber can become weed matting and mulch. Textiles are used in products like acoustic panelling.
  • Furniture and bulky household items are collected and taken to a transfer station where metals and plastics are removed for recycling. The rest of the items are sent to landfill. If your items are still in good, working condition, try to find a new home for them first.
  • Whitegoods are usually made of valuable metals and plastics. Our processors first remove any hazardous chemicals or heavy metals. Whitegoods are then crushed and shredded for recycling. Recovered materials like copper, steel and plastics can be turned into new metal and plastic products.
  • Metals like aluminium or steel from common appliances are 100% recyclable and can be recycled over and over again. Metals are melted down to be reused in new production.
  • Electronics are broken down into various parts and materials including glass, metals, plastics, batteries, cabling and circuit boards. These go back into the market to make new products.
