Bulky waste collection

If you have any waste that is too large to be placed into normal bins, you can book a time for it to be collected or take it to one of the local recycling centres.

For example:

  • old sofas
  • old beds
  • fridges
  • washing machines
Items we can and cannot collect

Before you arrange a collection

Instead of throwing away sofas, beds or appliances, consider donating them to charities.

Someone else might be able to use them.

A number of non profit organisations will collect good quality, second hand goods for reuse.

Bulky waste is a charged for service
