Other than visiting Space Waye, what are the alternatives?

1.Use Hounslow’s relaunched bulky waste collection service:

Hounslow Council has recently relaunched its bulky items collection service to make it easier for you to use the service – if you have larger to remove from your household. To find out all about it and to book a collection, please see here. (Please note if you live on a Housing Estate there may be alternative arrangements in place for you to dispose of your items.)

2.Sell or donate your unwanted items:

Use social media groups or websites like eBay, Gumtree, FreecycleFreegle or Facebook Marketplace. You’d be amazed at how one person’s trash can be another’s treasure! Only donate items to charity shops when they're open. Leaving donations outside charity shops which are not open is fly tipping!

3.Use a registered waste carrier to collect your rubbish:

Everyone has a legal 'duty of care' to ensure your household or business waste is disposed of correctly.  If it's your waste, it's YOUR responsibility.

  • Suspect all waste carriers. Don't let them take your rubbish until they provide proof of registration. Note their vehicle's registration plate.
  • Check that a waste carrier is registered on the Environment Agency's website.
  • Refuse any unexpected offers to have your rubbish taken away.
  • Ask how your rubbish will be disposed of - seek evidence of this.
  • Paperwork must be obtained: a proper invoice, waste transfer note or receipt, including a description of the waste being removed and the waste carrier’s contact details.
