Up until 2011 Council provided a service to urban households where they could place certain unwanted large items up to a total of 100kg on the kerb at a designated time for pick up.
This service was discontinued due to a large number of complaints that included health and safety concerns. As a result the number of Free Tip Days per year was increased to four.
There is potential to reinstate the annual kerbside bulky waste collection as a pre-booked service that reduces risk and complaints, and increases satisfaction and potential to recover reusable materials.
How successful do you think the Tip Free Day initiative has been as a replacement for the kerbside bulky waste collection service?
How important would an annual, pre-booked kerbside bulky waste collection service be for your household?
This consultation has concluded. Please go to the website for information on the new kerbside waste collection service.
