Recycling and Waste - Special Collections for Large Items

    If you have a large item such as a piece of furniture or a fridge etc you wish to dispose of, we offer the Special Collection for Large Items Service for which a charge will be made.

    Alternatively, if your furniture items are still in good condition and re-useable please consider donating them to a local Furniture Reuse Project rather than throwing them away, please have a look at our dedicated page for further information and advice.

    How can I dispose of bulky household items?

    The council provides a separate collection service for bulky items for which there is a charge that changes annually. The current charge is £45 for up to three items.

    Please contact us on 01785 619402 to book or for an application form. These items are collected on a pre-arranged day and items have to be at the front of the property for 7.00 am.
