We can only collect from residential properties within the borough.

The service is currently free of charge if you are receiving housing and/or council tax benefit. We will need your NI number when you book.

Book a Too Big For The Bin collection

Or contact Streetline on 020 7361 3001 during opening hours (Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 5.30pm).

Collection times

We collect between 7am and 3pm from Monday to Saturday.

We don't collect on Sundays, bank holidays or the Tuesday following Notting Hill Carnival.

Before we collect

Once you have booked a collection:

  • leave your items at ground or basement level on your property - please don't leave them on the pavement
  • bundle your items together - for example if you dismantle your wardrobe and bundle into one lot, this will count as one item
  • keep mattresses, carpets and rugs dry as they are very heavy to lift when they're wet

If you are elderly or disabled and need help to move the items yourself to the collection point, please telephone Streetline on 020 7361 3001.

Heavy items

If the item is extremely heavy or bulky we can arrange a three-man crew. This service is only available on the last Wednesday of the month.

Very heavy items include:

  • American fridge/freezers
  • sofa beds

If you dismantle a sofa bed and remove the metal action this counts as two items, so you won't need a three man crew.


If you want to cancel your appointment contact Streetline on 020 7361 3001 by 12 noon the last working day before the collection is due to take place.

If you don't let us know in time we can't give you a refund.
