If the bulky items we collect are in a reusable condition they will be taken to our workshop to be repaired and restored. These items can then be passed onto local charities for residents to purchase. 

All electrical and electronic equipment we collect will be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre at New Vale to be recycled.

We will not collect building materials, soil, sand, cement, loose timber or paint. You may be able to take some of these items to your local household waste recycling centre.  Please check what they will accept before making a journey.
