Bulky Waste Collections

Bulky Waste Collections

The Council will collect most bulky items. However, before you book a collection please read the guidance below.

We will not collect:

  • waste which is not bulky or can go in any of your bins
  • items equivalent to a small skip load

Please use the kerbside waste collection containers or the Household Waste Recycling Centres.

You need to leave items outside (front, side, rear with access) for collection. We never go into anyone’s property to collect items. The Council aims to collect Bulky Waste within 10 working days of your request.
