To request a bulky collection you can call us 0300 0300 900 or by calling into any of our depots. Please ensure you have checked to make sure your items are on the list we collect.

You will also be advised where the bulky waste should be left for our staff to collect; this will normally be the place your bin is collected from. For example, if your bin is usually collected in an entry, please bring items to the end of the entry. If your bin is collected at your driveway, please bring items to the end of your driveway. And if you have alley gates, please make sure items are left outside the gates.

Please note: we can only collect those items that have been originally booked with us – please don’t leave any other items out for collection. Any items we don’t lift may be taken FREE to our Household Recycling Centres (except plasterboard, asbestos and gas cylinders).

  • Leave all items out by 7am on the day of collection. Do not leave any items out until your collection day.
  • Make sure items are outside your property at your normal bin collection point. They should be all in one place and easy to reach.
  • Make sure there is enough space outside your property for our lorry.
  • Remove any nails from wood or furniture.
  • Tie, tape or bundle large amounts of wood like old furniture units.

Remember, we can’t collect items other than those you originally booked with us. We can’t enter parts of your home, like garages and sheds to collect items – so please leave items outside your property.

Please note: if customers do not follow these instructions we may not be able to collect your bulky waste.

If you’re looking to find a new home for your unwanted items, you can donate them to Restore. Restore is based at Banbridge Recycling Centre however good quality household items can be donated at any of the recycling centres across the borough. Unwanted but perfectly reusable items of household furniture and electrical goods are restored before being sold to the public at a fraction of the original retail cost. These items find a new lease of life with someone who really needs them, avoiding them ending up in landfill.
