Book a large item collection

Arrange a bulky item collection

To ensure that we can operate this service during the current pandemic, we have reduced the number of collections able to be booked each day.  We aim to offer residents a collection within 10 working days, but this will depend on demand. When booking, the collection day offered is the closest date available.

You will have to list the items that you want to have collected. Items not listed will not be collected on the day.

  • bikes and exercise equipment
  • dishwasher, washing machines and tumble dryers
  • garden appliances, for example lawn mower, barbecue
  • garden furniture

Cancelling a large item collection

You can cancel or amend the collection of your bulky item(s) if you change your mind. If you need to cancel a collection call Streetscene on 0151 606 2004.

You can change the list of items (up to the same total number), or get a refund for a cancellation, as long as you cancel or amend before midday on the working day (Monday to Friday) before the day the collection is due. You will not be able to make a change to the items after this time. If you cancel a collection after that time you will be liable for the full cost of the collection.

Commercial waste disposal

The council is not responsible for commercial waste. Businesses including charities must make their own arrangements with a private waste contractor. More information on commercial waste.
