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.

We will also reject any waste put out for collection that is not listed in the request.
