Bulky waste

You can book online if you would like to arrange for us to collect your bulky waste.

Check the opening times of the Linford Household Waste and Recycling Centre ('the tip') before you take your own items there. Remember to bring proof of address, such as a council tax bill or utility bill, as you'll be asked to prove you're a Thurrock resident – the site is then free to use.
