Large item collections

If you have got household rubbish that is too big for your bin such as an old fridge, television, mattress, or chair then we can collect it.

Before you make a request, have you considered donating your item to a reuse charity?

If you have furniture that is clean, in a reasonable and reusable condition it may be suitable to donate.

You can donate to:

Alternatively, instead of paying for a large item collection you could donate unwanted but useful items on the Freegle website, or try Lovejunk which is a marketplace for reusers.
