Householders can arrange collection of large, reusable items, such as furniture or white goods. If your goods are unsuitable for reuse, we can collect these from outside of your property for a charge. See our Large item reuse and collection page for details.

Clinical waste

We can also provide, upon request, a separate collection of Clinical Waste from householders who self-administer medication or treatment at home, for example: discharged sharps from the injection of insulin for the control of diabetes, or waste from home kidney dialysis treatment.
