Getting rid of large items

Bulky waste collections will be suspended from Mon 23 March. This is to help make sure we have enough staff for other collections as a result of COVID-19. Anyone with a bulky waste collection already booked will be contacted to arrange a refund.

If you have a large item which you are unable to take to a recycling centre you can book a bulky waste collection.

You will need to pay before we can arrange a collection date.

Book a bulky waste collection

Or call us on 01993 861025 to book.

Collections are from 6am and you will need to leave the items where they can be easily accessed, for example, where you normally leave your bins. We cannot help with moving them from your house.

We are unable to collect commercial waste or do house clearances.
