The Council does not currently provide a collection service for large bulky items. Residents wishing to dispose of such items should either take the items themselves, by private vehicles, or contact a local haulier to collect and deliver the items to the Household Waste and Recycling Centre at Porthmellon. All costs incurred for the removal of such items will be the responsibility of the householder and not the Council. Please be aware that a commercial waste charge will apply if a haulier is used to carry and dispose of your household waste.

Since January 2003, fridges & freezers as well as other electrical items that come over the WEE Directive have to be disposed of as special hazardous waste.
The Porthmellon Waste & Recycling Centre has facilities to receive hazardous electrical items including fridges and freezers. Residents must arrange for these items to be collected and taken to the site.
