At our Household Bulky Waste Drop Off Event, which is held twice a year, March and September (refer to your waste calendar for dates), our Up4Grabs area is open to all registered participants.
Participants have the opportunity to rummage through the Up4Grabs area and take as much as they want, for free.
This provides a safer environment for picking up second hand goods, rather than looking through bulky waste on the side of the road.
If you don’t have any materials to drop off at Household Bulky Waste, the Up4Grabs area will be open to the general public for one week after the event.
Our former scheduled clean up service allowed residents to put items on the kerbside up to 1 week beforehand.
This created mess within the streets and attracted illegal dumping.
Leaving bulky waste on the kerbside creates safety risks for our staff who collect the materials, and the public who are looking through the piles.
