Bulky waste

Other ways to dispose of bulky waste

Do you have a large bulky item such as a bed, sofa or an electrical appliance, for example a fridge, which is still in a good or usable condition? You may want to consider passing it on for reuse or recycling rather than it going to landfill.

You can dispose of bulky items at the Household Waste Recycling Centre 

Donate to a charity

  • if the item is in good condition
  • if the item has been stored indoors or undercover
  • if an electrical appliance, it is fully working
  • if an upholstered item, it has a red or blue fire label attached

If the item complies with the above points, then a charity may accept the donation. A small charge may be made for collection but some offer a free collection service.
