    Where should I leave my bulky items and when will they be collected?

    We collect bulky (non electrical) items with the same vehicle that empties your black bin.
    Items should be left at your bin collection point, on the same day as your black bin collection.

    We are unable to collect your items if you can't present them at your bin collection point.

    If you have a communal bin collection point, items should be left at the front of your property for easy access.

    We can't come inside your house or garage to collect items.
