Rural Bulky Waste Services

The Rural Bulky Waste Collection Service is provided to all 43 Parish Councils in Bedford Borough. A refuse lorry and an open bed skip is provided, in to which residents may dispose of domestic bulky waste.
The service visits each Parish once a year and the duration of stay is dependent upon the Parish population. Your Parish Council should display the collection dates about a week in advance.
