Bulky household waste

The new 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.

How to request a bulky waste collection

  1. Check the collected items list.
  2. Read the Terms and Conditions.
  3. Fill in the online bulky waste collection booking form and select a date for pick up.
  4. Ensure your items are safely on the boundary of your property by 7am and are accessible.

Waste which has been dumped illegally will be searched and the owner will have legal action taken against them.
