Alternative options

You can take some items to recycling centres across the region and dispose of them free of charge.

You can also pay us to collect and dispose of large items or lots of waste from your home that won't fit in your bin such as sofas, garden waste, bikes and mattresses.

We offer a separate white goods uplift service for domestic appliances such as fridges and washing machines.
