Bulky waste collections

Kerbside collections of rubbish and recycling continue as usual. Please put your bins out from 7am at their usual place on your normal collection day.

Important: Please remember to follow the Public Health England guidance on what to do with your waste if you suspect your household may be infected with Covid-19:

  • Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags.
  • These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.
  • Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

COVID-19 working arrangements

The normal collection day, displayed during the ordering process for your area, may change by up to 3 days.  Our contractor will attempt to contact you to confirm your collection day at least one working day in advance.  If for any reason they are unable to contact you, please leave your waste out on the day displayed during the booking process.  

Due to social distancing rules, we are unable to offer assisted collections for bulky waste at this time. We will not be able enter your property to assist with removing items. All items must be readily assessible for our crews to collect. Please do not approach the crews or offer to help them.

You can use our bulky waste collection service for items that are too big for normal household rubbish and recycling collections. There is a charge for this service.

Before ordering your bulky waste collection please look at the following information. This will tell you which items we collect and how much a collection will cost.

Please note that we cannot take business waste; if you run a business please see our Commercial Waste page.

What does it cost?

Bulky waste is split into three categories: standard items, small special items and large special items.

As a general guide, any item you would normally take with you during a house move is usually classed as a standard item; fixtures and fittings that you would not take with you during a house move are usually classed as special items.  However there may be some instances where exceptionally large, heavy or awkward to move items, which are not necessarily a fixture or a fitting, may be classed as a special item or an item that we cannot collect. 

The cost of a bulky waste collection will depend on the category of item(s) you wish to have collected.
   

Standard items

£26.00

 
We will collect up to four standard bulky waste items for £26.00. Up to four additional standard items can be added to your order at a cost of £10.75 per additional item.  The maximum number of standard items on one order is eight in total.
   

Small special items

£24.00

 
We collect small special bulky waste items for  £24.00 per item. We can’t collect these items as part of the standard bulky waste collection
   

Large special items

£37.75
