Getting rid of large items

If you have a large item which you are unable to take to a recycling centre you can book a bulky waste collection.

You will need to pay before we can arrange a collection date.

Call us on 01285 623123 to pay and book.

Collections are from 7am and you will need to leave the items where they can be easily accessed, for example, where you normally leave your bins. We cannot help with moving them from your house.

We are unable to collect commercial waste or do house clearances.

Charges for bulky waste collection

The cost is £25 for up to three items. Additional items will be an extra £5 each. We can collect a maximum of six items. Council tax and housing benefit claimants who provide their claim reference number when booking the service will receive a 50% reduction.
