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

    Items should be left at the front of your property at your bin collection point, on the same day as your black bin collection.

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

    We cannot come in to your house to collect items.

    How do I book a bulky collection?

    The cut off time for booking a bulky collection is 3pm the day before your black bin collection. If your collection day is a Monday, you must book by 3pm the Friday before.
