Sometimes you may have some large items, such as an old television, chair, sofa or a carpet. These types of items cannot be placed in your wheeled bin or additional rubbish with your bin. These are called bulky items.
You can arrange for a bulky waste collection through the Council.
To arrange a bulky waste collection contact us on 01766 771000.
There is a fee of £17.50 for this service, and we can collect up to 5 items in one collection. There is no limit to the number of bulky waste collections you can request in any period of time, but a fee of £17.50 will be charged every time. You can pay the fee with a debit card over the phone when you call to arrange the collection, or it is possible to pay by cheque or postal order.
Please note: We are unable to collect the following items as part of the bulky waste collection service:
- builders waste
- garden waste (place in the brown bin or take it to your local recycling centre)
- surplus household waste (take it to your local recycling centre)
- clinical waste (special arrangements can be made for clinical waste – information can be found in the household waste frequently asked questions)
Remember that you can take any large or electrical items to recycling centres free of charge.
A specific container to collect unwanted larger items for re-usable purposes is also located at each of the Council’s recycling centres.
