Bins, recycling and rubbish

Request a special uplift

Request and pay for large items to be collected. This includes white goods, mattresses and suites.


The charge is £35.23 for a standard request. This is based on two crew members uplifting all items within 15 minutes.

No concessions are available.

Due to current circumstances concerning COVID-19, we've limited resources and are unable to provide our special uplift service for the time being.

Larger uplifts

If your uplift is likely to take more than 15 minutes you should request a ground clearance to get a quote for this work.
