The council offers a chargeable collection service of bulky items from your home. The current cost is £38 for up to five items and £48 for up to five items if one or more of the items is hazardous. Some household items such as fridges, freezers, televisions, microwaves and fluorescent tubes are classed as hazardous waste. To find out more about hazardous items please click here

When leaving household items out for collection please ensure they are stored safely and securely as not to expose others to harm, especially young children.
