Bulky waste collection
You can pay us to collect and dispose of large items or lots of waste from your home that won't fit in your bin such as sofas, garden waste, bikes and mattresses.
You no longer need to put items out for uplift 72 hours before collection. Items can be placed outside on the day of collection for 7.30am at the normal bin collection point.
Quotes will be required for collection and disposal of sheds, bags of garden waste, multiple rolls of carpets.
It costs £13.95 for us to collect up to 3 bulky items or 10 bags.
What we'll collect
You can use the bulky uplift service to dispose of:
- old and unusable furniture (such as sofas, bed frames, mattresses or wardrobes)
- bathroom suites (such as baths and sinks)
- garden waste
- other large household and garden items (such as sheds)
- other large metal items (such as garage doors and radiators)
- washing machines
- tumble dryers
You may be advised that a quote by Waste Officer will be required due to the size and types of items needing to be collected and disposed.
