This section gives advice on the collection of large, bulky or heavy items of waste.
The Council does not provide a service for large, bulky or heavy items and you should contact one of the local hauliers if you have such items for disposal. All costs incurred for the removal of such items will be the responsibility of the householder.
Bulky and heavy items however, will be accepted at the Porthmellon Waste Site free of charge.
Fridges and Freezers
Since January 2003, fridges and freezers have to be disposed of as special hazardous waste.
End of Life Fridges/Freezers are transported to a specialist disposal company on the mainland where all the CFCs from the cooling unit and insulation are removed in accordance with the Ozone Depleting Substance Regulations.
