Ask us to collect large unwanted items

Charges 

There's a charge for this service:

  • £20 for up to two items

If you need to dismantle something, such as a wardrobe, we'll still count it as one item.

Items should be left outside of your house within the boundary of your property, please ensure your items are not obstructing the pavement.
