Bulky waste collections

Donate or reuse your items

We encourage residents to look at reuse options first before disposing of any item. There are many charitable reuse organisations in the borough that collect good quality reusable furniture and household electrical appliances.

Booking a bulky item collection

We can help you with the removal and disposal of larger household items, such as furniture, electrical appliances and DIY waste, such as bathroom suites, window frames, doors from residential properties. We aim to offer you a collection date within 10 working days of payment being received.

The cost of the collection is determined by the item type and the number of items being collected.

Putting bulky items out for collection

You must not place any items for collection on any public spaces, highways or verges. You should leave your items in a suitable place outside where we can easily access them, for example, on your driveway or in your garden.

Please note:

  • you should leave your items out by 7.00am on the day of collection
  • don't put items out a number of days before the collection is due
  • you do not need to be present at the time of collection

We will not enter a property to remove bulky items under any circumstances.
