Use this service to request a bulky item collection.
Bulky item collection charges will be increasing from £15.00 for up to 3 items to £18.00 for up to 3 items from 01/04/2019.
Our bulky item collection service is available for items that you are unable to recycle or dispose of in your wheelie bin.
Bulky Collection - if your item is classed as reusable please leave the item/s inside your property.
Reuse - we are now working in partnership with Furniture Revival to reuse as many items of furniture as possible. Initially we will ask if your item is reusable, we will then advise of the most suitable place to leave your item.
We charge £18.00 for a bulky collection and will collect up to 3 items.
If our crews attend the property and there are not items on site a request for another collection will need to be made. An additional charge of £18.00 will be made.
The minimum charge for this service is £18.00 even if you only need one item collected. The cost is designed to recover all manpower, vehicle and administration costs for collection.
Refunds can only be processed if a request is received by Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council more than 2 working days prior to the scheduled collection.
You can also take bulky items to your local Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRC). Please note you will need a permit if you are using a van to visit the HWRC.
