Bulky Waste Collections to resume
13 May 2020
Bulky waste collections, temporarily suspended at the beginning of the lockdown, will now resume and are available to book online.
Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: "Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and despite staff shortages and different working guidelines, kerbside collection services have continued as normal across the county. The only exception to this was the temporary suspension of the bookable bulky waste collections. This allowed us to concentrate our resources on collecting waste and recycling from households at a critical time. However, we are now in a position to resume this service for residents who want to book a collection for a bulky waste item."
Collections can be booked online and are currently limited to 10 collection slots per day from each depot. Initially, for the first few weeks, we will be unable to collect fridges, freezers or televisions as we currently do not have an outlet to recycle these hazardous electricals safely. As before, up to three standard items can be collected for a £30 charge.
On the day of collection, all items must be left outside, as close to the boundary of the property as possible. Crews will be unable to enter your property or remove items from houses, sheds or garages.
