  • bagged items like rubble and tiles must be in the appropriate strength bag or double bagged. 
  • you need to tell us where outside the items will be left for us to uplift. We'll not enter properties including garages to uplift items.

White goods are collected separately and may be collected at a different time and day to any other general items.


Due to new legislation issued by SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency), all domestic 
seating must be handled and disposed of differently to other waste. This is due to Persistent
Organic Pollutants (POPS) found in some chemical based fire retardants, which pose a risk to 
human health. 

This includes:

Sofas, Sofa beds, armchairs, kitchen and dining room chairs, stools, footstoools, home office chairs, futon, bean bags, floor and sofa cushions and electrical reclining chairs.

These goods will be collected separately and may be collected at a different time and day to any other general items.

We can't uplift: 

  • tyres
  • oil
  • car batteries 
  • fluorescent lights (1 or 2 is acceptable if mixed with other general items) 
  • anything containing asbestos 
  • items longer than 10 ft in length 
  • gas canisters*

*Please note: Gas canisters can be a health and safety risk if mixed with other materials before processing. They must be disposed of safely. 

Residents can take items that we can't uplift to a recycling centre free of charge. Visit our 'Recycling points and centres' web page for more details.  

A standard request is £54.15
