Bulky Waste Collection Service - Non-acceptable Items

This is a service for the collection of unwanted bulky household items and large amounts of garden waste.

We do not collect trade or commercial waste and we reserve the right to inspect/reject any waste that is believed to be from non-domestic sources.

On the day of collection, we will reject any waste put out for collection that is not listed in the request and we will also reject any waste that does not meet our requirements. 

Please note, any item that will fit into a 240 litre wheeled bin will not be determined ‘bulky waste’. If your item is over 2m in size, please contact Customer Services before you make a booking.
