A free bulky waste collection begins this week and is available to all residents across the borough.
Gedling Borough Council has announced this year’s service will be extended for the second year running and will continue until February.
The council will offer free collection of large household items to all residents and on a first come, first served basis from this week.
The first collections will begin now but only on Saturdays until January when residents can choose weekday collections up until the scheme ends in February. All available slots are available now for residents to choose a date.
To take advantage of this limited offer, residents need to visit www.gedling.gov.uk/bulkywaste enter their address and details of the items to be collected. The system will then tell them when the next free collection is available.
This scheme is an extension of the council’s annual bulky waste amnesty, which normally starts in January however, last year, it was decided to bring it forward and offer more collections between now and February.
The aim of the free service is to reduce fly tipping and to allow residents the opportunity to get rid of unwanted large items, which would normally be chargeable. Collection dates are limited and residents must book in advance on a first come, first served basis and any collection is subject to availability.
To book a collection visit www.gedling.gov.uk/bulkywaste or call Customer Services on 0115 901 3901.
