Request a collection of household bulky waste items

If you have large items at home that you no longer need and are still in good condition, you can have them collected by an organisation listed on Scotland's Re-use Tool.

Donate your items

Items will be collected by a local organisation and re-used. Find out ways to re-use items.

Before you book an uplift

There is a charge of £5 for each individual item uplifted. Up to 5 items will be collected per uplift.  We can only uplift domestic items, not commercial waste. 

If you or a member of your household have Coronavirus symptoms, you should not book an uplift. If you have already booked an appointment, please cancel your booking and re-book once you are fit and well again.
