We will contact you to advise when the booking is scheduled to take place. All Items must be left outside the property for collection, as the contractors are not insured to enter buildings. Please ensure there is access to the items at all times in this period.

Please note that items that can be fitted into a black sack/wheeled bin can be put out for your normal waste collection. All electrical items are not suitable for crushing in a refuse vehicle and should not be put out for normal refuse collections.

All household waste, including fridges and freezers, can be taken to the Household Waste and Recycling Centres  for disposal free of charge.

Items we cannot collect

We cannot take building or DIY waste, garden waste, pianos, fixtures and fittings (for example baths, sinks, kitchen cabinets and doors).

If you use a contractor to carry out work for you, it is their responsibility to dispose of the waste. It is your responsibility to make sure the waste is disposed of correctly and legally. Ask to see their Your Right to Know: Public Registers and ask where they are going to dispose of the waste.
