We can collect large household items from your home.  There are two different waste types that we collect:

  • Type 1 - Domestic fridges/freezers and electrical items e.g. television, washing machine, microwave, cooker
  • Type 2 - Soft furnishings e.g. sofa, arm chair, bed settee, ottoman
  • Type 3 - Other e.g cabinets, bicycle, bedframes

How much does it cost?

For the first item we charge £14.50 and for every additional item after that we charge £8.50. If you have a mix of type 1 and type 2 items then you will be charged per type i.e A fridge and a mattress would cost £29 as both items have to be collected separately. 

We can only collect your items if the following criteria have been met, otherwise, some or all of your items may not be collected:

  • Items will not be collected from behind gates, even if the gate is open.
  • Only items listed when making a booking will be collected
  • Your items must be outside
  • Soft furnishings that can soak up water must be covered and kept dry * Mattresses and bed settees must not be soiled, please contact a private contractor for these items

  • If you are bagging waste please ensure you only use large, thick, bin liners to prevent them from ripping
