Bulky Household Waste 

If you have unwanted large household items and appliances such as beds, fridges and furniture you can either recycle them or arrange for household waste collection.

 

Nearly everything we collect we send to Viridor's Energy Resource Centre, with the exception of mattresses, white goods and scrap metal which is recycled.

 

Donate where possible

If your items are of a good enough quality you may want to consider donating them to family, friends, neighbours or a local charity/community group instead.
