Bulky Waste & Electrical items
We offer a chargeable collection service for bulky waste and electrical items. A charge of £35 is made to collect up to four items which must be paid for at the time you make the order. (NB: There is a maximum of four items per fortnight).
This is not a house or garden clearance service and we will only collect household items that are either too big or too heavy to be placed inside your wheelie bin. A full list of items that we will collect can be seen on this page. You can request your bulky collection here.
Depending on the type and size of items to be collected, they will be collected by either a refuse truck or a box vehicle - please check the bulky items list below for further information.
Items to be collected by a refuse truck will be collected on the householder's next black bin collection day, providing the order is made by 12:30pm the day before the collection day. These items must be presented where you usually leave your bins for collection, by 5:30am on the morning of collection.
All other items will be collected by a box vehicle WITHIN three working days of the order being made and must be presented where you usually leave your bins for collection when the order is made.
If items are not presented on time, we will not make return visits or refund money already paid.
Bulky items can also be disposed of free of charge at your local household waste recycling centre or through charitable organisations that provide a furniture re-use collection service and will also collect furniture, bedding and curtains.
Alternatively you may want to use a private company to dispose of your bulky items, but please make sure they are Registered Waste Carriers with a current Waste Carrier's Licence.
