Bulky Waste Collection
Your scheduled bulky waste collection is for large unwanted household items. Bulky Waste items go straight to landfill so should be a last resort disposal option. Small household items should be placed straight into your red lid garbage bin.
Have a garage sale!
Before you throw away your unwanted household items, consider holding a garage sale to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and rehome unwanted items for some extra cash.
Important information about bulky waste collection
