Request a bulky item collection

A bulky item collection is a service to dispose of larger household items. Items that could be collected include beds, wardrobes, washing machines, fridges, freezers, TVs, tables etc.

Where should I put my items?

All items must be outside your property and ready for collection before you place your request and make the payment.

How long will it take?

We aim to collect bulky waste collections within 7 working days of your order being submitted. Our contractor can come out to your property as soon as 7.00am the next working day, and in some instances they can attend on the same day. The items will be taken within 7 working days, but if there is nothing out when they arrive, they will not return, and you will have to pay for another collection.

Request online

Note: Before you fill in and submit an online request, make sure you have identified all the items you want to dispose of.

Once you have submitted the request form you won't be able to add another item later.
