How to Book a Scrap Collection

Indoor Scrap Items
Indoor scrap items are collected by appointment (between 09:00 and midday on a date arranged with you).

Outdoor Scrap Items
Outdoor scrap items are collected on designated outdoor scrap collection days.

If the item(s) have already been moved outdoors to make space, we will collect from the rear garden of the property. In some cases where there is no rear access we may collect items from the front of the property or a communal refuse area.


Where possible scrap items should not be visible from the road to prevent unauthorised theft.
