Items that can be collected

As a general rule we will not collect anything that the average family would not ordinarily take if they moved house. 

We would normally collect bulky household items such as:

  • beds
  • carpets (please cut and roll into manageable sizes and place in a secure bag)
  • furniture
  • household electrical items - fridges and freezers must be empty
  • mattresses (please leave out for 48 hours and cover or wrap if possible)
  • sofas and armchairs (please place any loose cushions in a secured bag)

We do not collect:

  • DIY, construction and demolition waste
  • fitted kitchens, bathroom suites, internal doors
  • garden sheds, fences and greenhouses
  • garden waste
  • items that are over saturated or unsanitary
  • any waste from a business premises

The council has absolute discretion as to what it will and will not take as 'bulky waste'.
