How to prepare your bulky uplift

Please make sure that all items are stored correctly at the designated collection point.

Bags of waste should be able to be picked up by one person. Do not overfill bags.

Please ensure that all nails and screws are hammered into the wood or removed and will not cause injury. Also make sure that there are no sharp objects sticking through bags.

Carpets and mattresses

Carpets should be rolled and taped or tied. Please do not present mattresses until the day of collection as they can be very heavy if they get wet due to rain. We may not collect them if they are too heavy.
