Bulky collection - reusable items

What is this for?

To request a collection of any large item in good working order that you think someone else could use. Items should be free of rips, stains, scratches or other damage and, in the case of upholstered items, should have "fire labels" still attached as it is not possible to re-sell such items without them.

What is it going to cost?

Your items will be collected free of charge. However, if it is considered, by the collectors that the items are unsuitable they will be left.

Should you still require these items collecting, you will need to contact us to request and pay for a disposable bulky collection, or you may wish to use one a Household Waste Recycling Centres.
