Bulky Waste Collections

Collection of large or bulky items, such as sofas, fridges or mattresses

We will pick up large items from your home and take them away on your behalf. This service is for bulky, large items such as sofas, tables, chairs, mattresses and beds. 

Please note we also do not collect fixtures and fittings (such as carpets or fitted wardrobes) - you can take these to one of our Recycling Centres. 

There's a charge for collecting bulky waste, and all collections need to be booked in advance. We are running the standard collection service only, where items are left outside your home for collection - for up to five items, the cost overall is £45. Where possible please leave item(s) out for collection in the front garden.

To make sure collection can be made, please do not try to assist the collection team. Please make sure you comply with the current social distancing rules and do not place out any items that have not been booked in for collection.

Please note that this service is for bulky domestic waste only - hazardous wastecommercial waste and clinical household waste are not covered.
