Prepare your items for collection:

  • Securely tie together any loose items, such as wood, or put loose items in a heavy duty bag (each bag/bundle must weigh no more than 14 kilograms).
  • Seal fridges and freezers shut so that children cannot get inside.

Please only present the items that you requested at the time you booked your collection. Any other items will not be collected.

Place your items for collection:

Please make sure you put all items out after 8pm the night before and before 6am on the day of collection.

Items that haven't been listed and paid for won't be taken. Collection can take place at any time during the day up until 6pm. If a collection isn't made on the day that it was booked please report a missed collection.

  • Kerbside properties: if you have a garden please place your items inside your garden as close as possible to the boundary with the pavement and the entrance to the garden. If you do not have a garden then please place your items on the pavement to the front of your property without causing an obstruction.
  • Estates: place your items where your refuse is usually collected from. Please make sure that they do not block the shared bins as this may delay the collection of your general rubbish.
