What is this for?
To request a collection of your unwanted fridge/freezer.
What is it going to cost?
- £34 per bulky waste collection (up to 8 items).
- If you are in receipt of Local Council Tax Support and/or Housing benefit the cost is reduced to £17 per bulky waste collection (up to 8 items). To confirm your eligibility for the reduced rate you will need to provide us with your National Insurance Number, Benefit Reference Number and postcode. Please note that reduced rates do not necessarily apply to residents receiving Universal Credit (housing element) or those households entitled to the 25% reduction in Council Tax due to single person occupancy. Only those residents in receipt of the qualifying benefits are entitled to reduced rates.
What we need from you
Please ensure fridges or freezers do not contain any food or drink.
They will need to be put in an easily accessible location outside your property (not in a garage or out-building) but within your boundary. You will need to tell us on the form where they will be.
If your fridge or freezer is reusable we will be able to collect it from inside your house, if you would like us to do this you must include detail on the form.
The Council is committed to meeting its data protection obligations and handling your information securely. You should make sure you read and understand the Waste and Recycling - privacy notice, which sets out what you need to know about how Doncaster Council will use your information in the course of our work as a Waste Collection Authority.
What you should expect from us
You will be advised of the next available collection day and will be able to book your collection for that day, however we cannot give you a specific time for the collection. Items should be made available for collection by 7:30am on the day and will be collected by 3:30pm.
We do not collect Commercial or Industrial fridges or freezers, you will need to contact a private contractor to carry this out.
We do not accept liability for any items left outside your home and do not accept responsibility if items are taken from outside your property prior to the collection date.
