Before you start
Your bulky items/DIY waste will be collected from the same location we collect your other rubbish and recycling.
You will need to book a DIY waste collection if the waste is produced during home improvements or building works.
Before you book a DIY waste collection, find out what bulky and DIY items we can collect
The Bulky Waste Collection Service is for items that are only suitable for disposal.
There are charges attached to this service.
However, if someone else might want your items, you can:
- Sell them (for example using Gumtree)
- Give them away (for example using Freegle)
- Use a free charity collection service (for example the British Heart Foundation)
What happens next
We will collect your bulky and DIY waste items no more than 10 days after you book the service.
Your collection will be on the same day that we collect individual dustbins and clear recycling sacks in your street (large communal wheeled bins may be emptied on different days). Check your bulky waste collection day.
You should ensure that the items are available for collection by 6.30am on your collection day.
