Bulky Waste

14 March 2023

Are you struggling to dispose of bulky waste?

Are cost and transportation a barrier to correctly disposing of your bulky waste?

Lowestoft Town Council will soon begin a trial of a scheme to help households in Lowestoft who are on low or no income by offering a free to access collection and disposal of bulky waste items such as sofas, fridges, wardrobes and play equipment. Full details will follow.

The scheme is part of the Town Council’s aim to decrease fly-tipping and restore pride in the town. We are already working with volunteers who give their time to pick litter in our parks and open spaces as well as employing environmental support officers who complement this work. Would you like to be involved in improving the environment as well? If so, simple steps such as ensuring you take your litter home and dispose of this correctly can make a huge difference or if you have time to spare contact us about opportunities for volunteering in our parks and open spaces.
