What is bulky waste?

Bulky waste is domestic waste that is too big for your usual bin collection.

Some bulky waste, such as working appliances or good quality furniture can be donated to charity shops for re-sale or to help residents on low income. Some of these organisations may be able to come and collect those items for free. See Other ways to dispose of bulky waste.

If you want the council to collect your bulky waste, read on to see what we can and cannot collect.

Do not dump your bulky waste

Dispose of your waste correctly. Fly-tipping is a criminal offence punishable by a fine of up to £50,000 or 12 months imprisonment if convicted in a Magistrates' Court. The offence can attract an unlimited fine and up to five years' imprisonment if convicted in a Crown Court.
