Getting rid of large items

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

Charges for bulky waste collection

The cost is £34.00 for up to four items. Please see details below of what we can and can't collect.

Please note: Your items will all be collected on the same day, but some may be collected at different times, by a different crew, depending on how recyclable your items are.

Book a bulky waste collection

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 business waste or do house clearances. For business waste please click here.

What we will collect

The types of items we are able to collect:

  • furniture: for example, sofas, mattresses, tables, chairs, beds, drawers, shelves, mirrors
  • white goods: for example, fridges, washing machines
  • large electrical items: for example, televisions, microwaves, electric fires
  • outdoor equipment: for example bikes, lawnmowers (not ride-on), children’s play equipment e.g trampolines (must be dismantled).
