Bulky Uplifts of Household Waste

You can pay to have larger items collected if they will not fit in your household bin. The Council's bulky uplift service allows householders to dispose of items such as sofas, tables, beds, bathroom suites, garage doors, bicycles and mattresses.

Alternatively, householders can take large items to local Household Waste Recycling Centres for disposal or contact a local furniture reuse project to see if they are able to accept the item.

The Council also deals with requests to collect bulky waste from commercial properties.
