Bulky waste collections are now safely resuming on Saturdays in Rushcliffe.
As part of Rushcliffe Borough Council’s plans to deliver as many refuse collection services as possible during COVID-19, it is re-opening the service from Saturday, May 9.
Large items of furniture, mattresses and other large household items can be collected by calling 0115 981 9911 only with online booking available again as soon as possible.
Residents are asked to be patient to book a collection as it is anticipated the service will be popular and will be asked to clarify the items requested to be collected before a booking is confirmed in line with the authority’s standard charges.
Large electrical items can be collected by Streetwise Environmental Services by calling 0115 914 8408.
Residents should always use a reputable licensed waste carrier for disposal of any waste from their homes and request to see the relevant documentation from the Environment Agency before agreeing to use a service.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Safety Cllr Rob Inglis said: “Our waste teams have a done an excellent job safely maintaining the key bin collections during recent weeks and we’re delighted the only element of the service temporarily suspended is now resuming.
“Please be patient when booking as we know the service may be popular as waste services everywhere continue to adapt in light of the pandemic.”
Household Waste Recycling Centres in Rushcliffe are operated by Nottinghamshire County Council who are working with central government on when its services could resume.
