Once you have paid for your Bulky Collection you will be advised of the collection date (this will be on your normal refuse collection day). The exception is for the removal of "Special Waste" (see above for list) which will only be collected on a Tuesday or Friday and the date will be available to view before you proceed to payment.
Please note that we cannot remove items from inside your property. If there is no one in your household able to move the items out to where you normally leave your refuse sacks, please let us know this when you book. We will then be able to consider your case individually and possibly arrange for you to complete a disclaimer to allow us to collect the item from a more convenient place. Alternatively, you may have a neighbour, friend or family member that could help you.
There may be occasions where due to the number of bookings received, we may need to schedule your collection for the following week. Please book early if your removal date is urgent.
Your bulky waste item(s) need to be at the point where you normally leave your refuse sacks before 6.00am on your day of collection.
