Change in Hinckley and Bosworth bulky waste collections 

Due to a legislation change from 1 January 2023, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council will be collecting and disposing of some bulky waste, such as sofas and chairs, separately to other bulky waste, such as wardrobes.

This change is due to waste items that contain persistent organic pollutants (POPs) now needing to be incinerated, rather than taken to landfill. The fire retardant (POP) is found in most upholstered furniture such as sofas and chairs. The Environment Agency and DEFRA have made these legislation changes to reduce pollution, in particular to the aquatic environment.

Items this will affect include:

  • Sofas/sofa beds/armchairs
  • Kitchen and dining room chairs (if upholstered)
  • Stools and foot stools (if upholstered)
  • Home office chairs
  • Futons
  • Bean bags
  • Floor and sofa cushions 

We will still be collecting these types of items, but this may mean we will visit you twice and in some circumstances on a different day. This is due to different vehicles collecting different types of waste.

This change in legislation also affects private licensed waste carriers. Please ensure that anyone taking any waste away is licensed to do so as you can be fined if items are fly-tipped and traced back to you.

You can still take these types of items to Leicestershire County Council recycling and household waste sites. 

Collection charges are as follows:

General bulky items (also known as non-POPS)

  • Up to three items £35
  • Additional items per item £10
  • Maximum of five items per booking

Upholstered items (also known as POPS)

  • Up to two items £35.00
  • Additional items per item £15
  • Maximum of five items per booking

Collections take place on Mondays and Thursdays. We collect up to 90 requests each week.
