Bulky household waste collections

Service update

The bulky household waste collection service (Too Big for the Bin) is now operating and we are taking bookings. However, due to Covid-19, we can only collect bulky waste items from outside your property.

Please make sure you leave items on the pavement, outside of your property on the day of your collection. Unfortunately, we can’t provide a collection service for items classified as 'heavy' on the booking system at this present time. Please check our website for any changes to the service due to Covid-19.
