The collection of bulky domestic waste such as old furniture, carpets and white goods has been reinstated as from Monday 18 May.
This paid-for service will operate across the area from today, with a current capacity for a maximum of 20 collections a day. Extra staff and vehicles will be made available should demand outstrip normal capacity.
For a fixed charge of £ £25.75 the council will collect a maximum of five large items along with two bags of general waste. To book a collection residents should call the bulky uplift hotline on 0300 123 4565 during working hours.
While recycling centres currently remain closed during the pandemic many households have had the time to have a clear-out with no outlet to dispose of larger items. The bulky uplift service can be delivered safely within the physical distancing guidelines set out by the Scottish Government.
