Bulky Rubbish Collection

Please be aware that bulky waste collections will not be available between Monday 24th December to Monday 14th January. You will still be available to book appointments during this time for collections commencing Tuesday 15th January.

If you have household items that are too big for normal waste collections, we offer a separate, chargeable collection service.

Normally this will be a piece of furniture, white goods, such as fridges, freezers and dishwashers and mattresses.

Please note we do not collect fixtures and fittings such as carpets, windows and doors. These items should be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre (Tip)

If you have employed a builder or plumber they should remove their own waste. For a large amount of items please hire a skip. 

Please think about a reusable option such as donating to charity or offering to well known second hand websites before considering this service.
