Local Bulky Waste Collection For Households


There are many rules and regulations surrounding the disposal of household waste that’s not a surprise there is so much fly tipping blighting the countryside.  These rules are however necssary and they do actually make sense.  Each council or local authority in England and Wales offer bulky waste collections which must be booked and paid for in advance with a charging table typically £30 for 3 items,£50 for 6 items etc.  An example of what that covers would be a 3 piece suite counts as 3 items;  a bedstead and separate mattress is 2 items, if there’s a headboard aswell, that makes 3 items.  A date is booked with the collection team, they have set days for collecting in village areas and once booked, the items must be put out on the kerbside or other accessible position, before 6.30am on the day.  Obviously there is a list of items that canot be collected in this way, including but not limited to: asbestos – this needs specialist hazardous waste handling.  Also banned are huge Aga/range cookers – sheer weight;  bathroom suites & sanitary ware; boilers; motor parts and garage doors.   The list is longer but time and space limits!  The list of accepted items is pleasingly much longer and more comprehensive.   The banned items often tend to be those flytipped unfortunately.
