Great news for Harrow residents! – Harrow Council have announced that this autumn, changes to bulky waste collections will help residents dispose of large items for free.
The council have stated that the new system will be ‘quick and easy’ for those residents wanting to remove large items but are put off or worried by the cost of removal.
In May, the new Harrow Council cabinet approved the plans to introduce free bulky waste collections as part of the council’s plans to ‘put residents first.’

Plans are currently in motion to finalise all of the details, Harrow Council are expected to make further announcements in the coming months.
Cllr Paul Osborn, Leader of the council said:“When people step out of their homes, we want them to feel pride in their community. They want cleaner streets and an easy way to dispose of waste – so we are delivering on our promise of free bulky waste collections to help our residents dispose of large items quickly and easily. This measure will help to combat fly-tipping in our borough, alongside better enforcement.
“For those who break the rules by illegally dumping waste on our streets, our enforcement approach will take tougher action against those intent on blighting our borough.”
