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.

Charges for bulky waste collection

The cost is £27.50 for up to three items. Additional items will be an extra £5.50 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.  See details below of what we can and can't collect.

Please note: This collection service is not available on bank holidays.
