Getting rid of large or bulky items

If you have large or bulky items for disposal we can collect these from you for a small charge. Alternatively if the items are in a reusable condition you can donate them to Second Chance.

Cost

The current charge for a bulky waste collection is:

  • £23.00 for up to six items
  • £4.00 for each additional item (maximum two)

There are no exemptions to the charge.

Items will be collected on the Friday after payment is confirmed. In exceptional circumstances (e.g. due to the disability of the occupants) arrangements may be made to complete collections at specific times or collect items from within the premises.

If your collection includes metal and non-metal items we might collect from your property using two different vehicles. This is to allow metal items to be recycled.
