Items we don't PickUp

Items that don't fit in the bag

A bag is the size of a standard shopping bag (40cm H x 20cm D x 40cm W) with a capacity of ​26 Litres.

 

All items must reasonably fit in the bag allowing for some overflow. However, we will not collect items that obviously do not fit in a bag with the given dimensions.

Liquids that are not sealed

At this stage, we do not collect any containers of liquids from the problem waste section that are not correctly sealed or are leaking.

Clothes that are not wearable

We do not collect any clothing that are in an unwearable condition. 

Toxic or other harmful waste​

We do not collect any toxic or hazardous waste that should be collected by hazardous, chemical or toxic waste collection services. 

What about the bag?

  • You can use any shopping bag as well as our RecycleSmart bag if you have it already with you. 

  • You can book up to 10 bags per PickUp. The bags must be shopping bag size/type - 40x40x20

  • Recyclable bags will be recycled - Reusable bags (including RecycleSmart one) will be placed back where we found them for future PickUps
