Bulky items collections

In this section you can find out how you can dispose of larger household items that cannot be collected in your usual fortnightly waste collection. The bulky items collection service is for domestic properties only. 

What bulky items can we collect

We can collect up to three items - such as furniture and white goods - but not pianos. Individual items must weigh less than 100kg.  For some items, such as carpet or doors, we can only take one of each. For more than three items we can provide an estimate.

If you have items that we cannot take as part of this service, we can provide you with an estimate for alternative arrangements. 

How much does the service

The service costs £45.60 (non-refundable)

Where to leave items for collection

All items for collection must be placed outside the front of the property but within the boundary. Fridges and freezers must be emptied prior to collection.

Recycle or donate your items instead Toggle accordion

Many of the things we throw away haven’t always reached the end of their useful life. Something that you don’t want any more can still be used by someone else.


Donating your items to someone else or recycling them is always a better option than throwing them away. For details of organisations that provide opportunities to sell, donate, or give away used furniture and household items.
