Large and bulky waste collection

Due to COVID-19 we will recommence this service from 22 June 2020, however we will be reinforcing the following restrictions:

  • all items must be available for collection at the edge of the property nearest the highway,
  • we are unable to knock on doors to gain access to garages or back gardens,
  • under no circumstances can we enter properties.

Collections

We will remove household waste items by special arrangement for which a minimum charge of £54.10 is payable for up to 4 items. 

This service includes the collection of furniture and white goods from a domestic property and items you would normally take with you when moving house. We will not remove fixtures and fittings or DIY waste. We will only remove items smaller than 6ft which can be lifted by 2 operatives.   

Price

A minimum charge of £54.10 is payable for up to 4 items (can include a maximum of 2 white goods). We cannot give exact prices for this service as various factors have to be taken into consideration such as the location and type of items. This often requires the Visiting Officer confirming the fee after the officer has viewed what has to be collected.

Collection location

All items to be collected must be left at the edge of the property nearest the highway for collection, we will not collect from inside the property.

Access to collect items must be clear.
