Collections will be made between 7am and 12pm. We are not able to provide a more precise timeslot, but if all items are accessible to our team, you will not need to be at home at the time of pick-up.

Please note we are unable to provide a refund in the event of any items being taken by a third party prior to collection by us.

Assessed collection service

Some items excluded by the large items collection service can be removed by using the Assessed Collection Service.

An assessed collection can be arranged by contacting our depot at Cavendish Road on 01438 242323 and asking for Assessed Collections. Arrangements will then be made for the contractor to visit the location and give a price for the removal or disposal of the items.

If you choose to use a private company to dispose of your bulky waste, please ensure that they have a valid Waste Carriers Licence.
