Items that cannot be collected
We do not offer collection of -
- any items which can be recycled in the blue or brown bin
- bags or boxes of general waste
- gas bottles (please contact supplier as detailed on bottle)
- fluorescent tubes
- broken glass
- paint tins (empty or full)
- car batteries

Items will be collected from within the boundary of your property and you should tell us the location of the items (front or back garden, drive for example). Items should be accessible from 7am on their scheduled appointment days. Items may be collected by more than one crew for recycling purposes.
If your wheeled bin is presented in a tenfoot, bulky items should be presented in your front garden to enable our vehicle to gain access. If, at the time of collection, access is not gained to the items for any reason, we will leave a customer response card.
Other disposal options
Another option for disposing of your unwanted household items would be to take them to one of our household waste recycling centres, located at Burma Drive, Sutton Fields and Wiltshire Road.
