What items can I have collected?

We can help dispose of bulky household items which are too large for your regular waste collection. We collect most freestanding items or furniture that:

  • can be safely carried between two people; and
  • you'd normally take with you if you were moving house.

We also collect electrical goods known as 'WEEE' (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment). This includes petrol driven lawnmowers, any items fitted with an electrical plug or using batteries for power.

Note: Ten or more items for collection would be classed as a house clearance and we don’t have the capacity to collect this amount from a single property.

For a detailed list of accepted items, see What we can and can’t collect.

What will it cost?

One item (electrical or non-electrical)* £19
Each additional item £8
Fixed price items** £26

*A bed, headboard, base and mattress counts as one item.
**Fixed price items include:

  • Table including up to 4 chairs
  • Three-piece suite (settee and 2 armchairs)

When is bulky waste collected?

Bulky waste is collected weekly on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, except after bank holidays (see Check collection dates). Your collection day will depend in which area you live, see Bulky Waste Map.

Note: There's a limit of ten collections per day, which is available on a first-come-first-served basis. Providing spaces are available, you'll need to book two full working days before your collection day to guarantee pick up on the next scheduled visit:

Collection Day

Last day to book for next collection

Area 1 - Monday By 5.00pm, the Wednesday before
Area 2 - Wednesday By 4.30pm the Friday before
Area 3 - Friday By 5.00pm, the Tuesday before

 

Bookings made after the cut-off days above will be deferred to the following week.

We'll ask you to leave your bulky waste items outside your property either the night before or by 6.00am on the collection day. Both electrical and non-electrical items will be collected together any time between 6.00am and 4.00pm.

Note: We will not enter your property to collect as we're not insured for any damage that could be caused.
