What can be collected as a bulky item?

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 and mattresses
  • carpets (please cut and roll into manageable sizes)
  • furniture
  • household electrical items - fridges and freezers must be empty
  • sofas and armchairs

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'.
