What sort of items are applicable?

Bulky waste collections are usually available for items which are too big or heavy for your usual waste collection, or cannot be taken to the tip.

Examples include beds, wardrobes, sofas, white goods and other electricals such as CD players and computer equipment.

When do collections take place?

Items for collection should be placed outside the person’s property in an accessible location on the allocated day.

A resident does not have to remain at home for the collection, as long as the items are outside.

They should be placed outside by 7am on collection day.
