Boston May Fair

Boston Borough Council and the Showman's Guild are pleased to announce that for the first time on Sunday 5th May 11am-1pm the May Fair on Bargate Green Car park and Wide Bargate will be opening without sound. This will enable families with children with additional needs to enjoy the delights of the May Fair without the sensory overload that can sometimes prevent some of them enjoying the experience.

If you wish to cancel your bulky collection and obtain a refund, you need to let us know at least 2 working days prior to your collection day. We are unable to provide refunds for any cancellations made after this time. Only full refunds will be given, we do not part refund.

Please note that we are not insured to collect items from the inside of properties. For this reason we ask that all items for collection should be placed at the front of the property the night before or by 05:30am on the day of collection. If your bulky collection is noted by the refuse crew as not out when they visit your property we will not come back for the item(s) and you will need to pay for a recollection.

You may want to use a private company to dispose of your waste, but we do advise you make sure they are registered waste carriers with a current waste carriers licence.

Furniture reuse

If you do have furniture that is still in good condition, before calling us for a bulky collection why not call Centrepoint Outreach which is a local Christian charitable organisation. They will collect, store and re-distribute furniture and household items to those in need within approximately a 10 mile radius of Boston.
