Kirkby residents can now book their free bulky waste collections
Residents in Kirkby and the Rurals are now able to book their one free bulky waste collection from Ashfield District Council.
The Council has changed the way it offers free bulky waste collections. Residents can now book their one free collection of up to three items throughout the year, with collections based on where they live.
Kirkby’s collections take place in July 2022, October 2022, and January 2023. Bookings for collections open two weeks before the collection month and must be made using the online form via Ashfield 24/7 or by calling 01623 450000.
Since the scheme began in April, the Council have collected over 5000 individual items, weighing over 102 tonnes.
Cllr Samantha Deakin, Executive Lead Member for Parks, Town Centres and Environmental Services, said:
“It is fantastic that residents in Kirkby, Selston, Jacksdale, and Underwood can now book their free bulky waste collections this month. This is the second collection for Kirkby so there are still two more opportunities to access a free collection during the year.
“We are delighted to be able to continue a free bulky waste collection for a fifth year in a row. We know that these collections are a firm favourite of residents, allowing them to safely dispose of excess waste. Last year, reports of fly-tipping went down nearly a quarter; it’s because of campaigns like the BIG Spring Clean that we are seeing a huge reduction.”
Bookings for collections in Hucknall will open in July 2022.
