This service is for the disposal of larger items of household waste that either does not fit in your bin or cannot be taken to the Household Waste and Recycling Centre.
Collections cost £20 for up to 6 household items, such as a sofa, bed, mattress, wardrobe, chair and table. Electrical Items are charged £10 for the first item then £7.50 for each additional item.
Items that contain Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP's) will also be charged £20 for up to 6 items. These items will be collected separately from any other waste.
Whilst it is regrettable we can no longer offer a free bulky waste collection service, we believe a charge of £20 is good value for a bookable waste collection service, and much cheaper than many other councils.
Residents receiving Council Tax Support are entitled to one free collection per financial year – have your council tax reference number ready if you’d like to claim your free collection.
Electrical items continue to be charged at £10 for the first item and £7.50 for additional items.
There are many charities and organisations that may be interested in second-hand furniture and appliances if they are in good condition, please consider these alternatives to give unwanted items a new home.
