I have had a clear out of my shed/cupboards/garage what do I do with the rubbish? Are Bulky Waste Collections still operating?

Bulky household items (EG Furniture and other oversize items that cannot fit into wheeled bin) cannot be placed out for the kerbside collection. Bulky items are now accepted at the Hatston and Garson HWRCs.

On the outer or non linked islands bulky waste collections are available by booking online via the Councils website.
