Bulky Waste Collections

Bulky Waste

*PLEASE BE AWARE* - Due to staff shortages linked to the current coronavirus pandemic we have made the decision to stop Bulky Waste collections for the time being. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

We provide a chargeable service for the collection of bulky waste items which are too large for your regular household waste and recycling collections.

We’ll also collect any bagged small electrical items or textiles for free at the same time that we collect the bulky item. No limit applies.

Items that will be collected for a charge:

  • Bed bases and mattresses
  • Televisions and computer monitors
  • White goods (washing machines, dishwashers, fridges, freezers, cookers, microwaves etc.)
  • Furniture (sofas, chairs, tables, footstools, dressing tables, wardrobes, drawers etc.)
  • Radiators and storage heaters

Items that we will not collect

  • ceramic or plastic bathroom suites or shower cubicles
  • boilers or water tanks
  • building waste (e.g. plasterboard, rubble, ceramic tiles, asbestos etc.)
  • carpet, linoleum or laminate flooring
  • doors or windows
  • garden waste
  • kitchen units
  • plate glass
  • sheds or fence panels
  • car tyres
