Residents in Kirkby can now book free bulky waste collections in an effort to reduce fly tipping. Ashfield District Council are offering Kirkby and the Rurals residents three bulky waste collections each year.

People in the area can book their one free collection of up to three items throughout the year. Collections are based on where residents live.

Kirkby’s collections take place in July, October and January next year. Bookings open two weeks before the collection month and can be made online or over the phone.

The scheme started in April and the council has collected over 5,000 items already. 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.
