Special collections

From 29 October, we are changing our recycling and waste collection routes. This means your collection days may change. You can read more about the changes.

We offer four types of special collection.


  • Large item collectionsWe can collect large items from outside your home, including sofas, fridge freezers and sheds.
  • Clinical waste collectionsWe provide a free weekly clinical waste collection service, which includes needles and other medical waste.
  • Assisted collectionsIf you can't move your bins, bags and boxes to the boundary of your property, you can request a free assisted collection service.
  • Incontinence waste collectionsWe provide a free weekly incontinence waste collection service, for items such as incontinence pads.
