Bulky waste collections resume

by Cathy Sheel

The council’s Bulky Waste Collections Service is resuming, with bookings being taken from Monday 15 June and collections starting from Monday 22 June.

To ensure everyone’s safety during the Coronavirus outbreak, residents will be asked to accept the following new terms and conditions when booking a collection:

• All items to be collected must be thoroughly cleansed using soap and water or sanitising spray/wipes before being removed from the property at least 72 hours before the date of collection. The items must be kept dry and secure and placed at the front of the property by 7am on collection day.
• The option to provide assistance in removing heavy items from inside a property WILL NO LONGER be available and residents will be asked to make their own arrangements to ensure the items are placed in the correct location. If the resident fails to do this, then the items will not be collected and the charge will remain. This will be made clear on the booking form.
• Residents must confirm that there have previously been no confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus at that address and, the household is not currently within a 7 or 14 day isolation period due to the presence of COVID-19 symptoms.

It costs £20 to have up to five items collected and £40 for between six and 10 items.

It is expected that demand will be higher than usual following the resumption of the service, therefore collections may not be possible within the normal five days. Residents will be offered the first available slot for their area at the time of booking.
