Borough Insight

Top of the heap

Sofas are the top of the pile of unwanted bulky waste we collect from the boroughs households. Mattresses and armchairs follow, making the top three of the most collected items.

Beds, freezers, televisions, wardrobes, washing machines and cookers are the standard items collected within the borough but there have also been a surprising quantity of fish tanks, a pool table and even a hot tub

If you have a larger item you no longer need or it no longer suits your décor but there’s still life in it the first thing to consider is recycling – see, who can collect the item and find it a new home.

However, if the item is rubbish, we can collect it.

There is a fee which reflects the true cost of disposing of the item (or items). Be wary of offers of cheap disposal of any kind of rubbish, it may well end up as fly tipped and if it is traced back to you, you could face a heavy fine.
