DIY waste collection

If the items include waste produced during the course of home improvements and building work (e.g. fitted bath tubs, carpets and wardrobes), you will need to book a DIY waste collection, for which higher charges apply.

  • The first four bulky DIY items are covered by the minimum charge: £72
  • Two further bulky DIY items: 2 x £15 = £30
  • Three sacks of DIY waste: 3 x £6 = £18

Total charge = £120
