Bulky waste such as furniture

Booking a bulky waste collection

Before booking a bulky waste collection, please read the information below to find out what, and when, we collect and how much it costs.

What do we collect?

This is a chargeable service (see below). It is for waste that is too large or heavy to fit into your bins, such as furniture, washing machines, fridges and freezers.

Please note the following:

  • Fridges/Freezers need to be empty of food and have the doors taped securely shut. Please note: we do not collect large, American-style or commercial fridges and freezers because they are too large for the tail-lifts on our vehicle.
  • We do not collect heavy items such as building rubble; posts; paving stones; iron baths; soil; pianos; hazardous waste such as asbestos (roofing tiles etc); florescent tubes (they contain mercury); hygiene waste (sharps etc); heavy panes of glass and glass doors.
  • Certain items, such as roofing, will need to be checked before collection to ensure they are not hazardous.

How much does it cost?

The cost depends on how many items you wish us to collect. The cost will be automatically displayed when you book.

Please note that five ordinary bin-bags of waste count as one item. If you have a large amount of waste, or an unusual item, we can provide a specific quote after visiting the property to assess the load.

The service is non-refundable once booked, All items need to be included in your booking, we cannot add items to a booked collection at a later date.
