We will not collect:

Please use the kerbside waste collection containers or the Household Waste Recycling Centres.

You need to leave items outside (front, side, rear with access) for collection. We never go into anyone’s property to collect items. The Council aims to collect Bulky Waste within 10 working days of your request.

There will be restrictions on the size of some household waste materials that can be collected for Health and Safety reasons and/or within the resources that are available to Council.
