Bulky waste collections

The number of collection slots will be reduced from Monday 8 June to make sure operatives can get round in the allotted time, as they now spray all of the items with disinfectant before collecting them.

To find out more about what is happening at our tips go to the recycling centre page.

Standard and rapid bulky waste collection service can collect up to 10 unwanted items that are too big to put in a domestic bin.

For a standard service, large items will be collected within 4 to 10 working days. The rapid service is subject to availability but we will collect unwanted items in 1 to 3 working days.
