Bulky waste

Different rules apply to residual waste which doesn’t fit in the waste container or underground container. You can either take this to a waste recycling centre yourself, or you can arrange to have it collected.

The things you want to throw away may well still be useful to someone else. You could offer them to a charity shop, or post them in a giveaway group on social media.

You can take your waste to one of the three waste recycling centres free of charge. Tip: bring your waste type by type, this will make sure you’re done in no time at all. So wood with wood, plastic with plastic and metal with metal. You will not be able to leave any residual waste and unsorted construction and demolition waste here.
