Gedling Borough Council restarts bulky waste collections

Alert message sent 16/05/2020 21:00:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Gedling Borough Council has restarted large bulky waste collections from Friday 15th May 2020.

Customers who booked collections before the Coronavirus pandemic will be contacted first to arrange a new date to pick up their large items.

Around 250 customers will be contacted by the council over the next few days to advise them when their collection will take place. The booking system will be open for new customers from next week to book on line or by calling Customer Services on 0115 901 3901. Slots are likely to be in high demand, so residents are asked to bear with the council.

The return of the bulky waste service means that the council is now running all of its critical and non-statutory waste services. Glass and bulky waste were suspended at the end of March but are now running, as scheduled. On the first two days of scheduled collections, over 56 tonnes of glass, double the normal amount, were collected by the council’s waste crews. The council has doubled up its glass collection crews to ensure all of the extra amounts are collected.

Customers who have already booked a bulky waste collection are advised not to contact the council or to attempt to rebook, as they will be contacted over the next few days to rearrange a collection date. New customers can visit the council’s website to reserve a slot - www.gedling.gov.uk/bulkywaste

To comply with the government’s social distancing measures and to reduce the risk of the council’s employees and residents contracting the virus, collections will be required to be placed outside properties 72 hours before collection and the council’s crews will not be able to enter properties or come into contact with residents when moving the bulky items.
