Bulky Household Waste Collections

New Charges and Change of Contact Number

From Monday, 4 July 2011, the Comhairle will commence charging for the uplift of Bulky Household Waste.  The current charge for a Bulky Household Waste collection is as stated in the 'Special Collection / Household Waste' section of the Fees and Charges (Cleansing) page.

To make a booking, please call 01851 600 502.  For the convenience of householders we have introduced a telephone payment system using Debit or Credit cards.   Alternatively householders may call in at any of the Comhairle Customer Service Access Points where they will take details of your collection and take payment by cash or card.
