Bulky Matters

Buying new furniture or electrical appliances for your home in the sales and eagerly awaiting the arrival of that delivery van?

Why not give 'Bulky Matters' a call and make space for your new goods?

Bulky Matters was launched in July last year by Wyre Council in partnership with Furniture Matters (a re-use and training charity), to introduce a whole new approach to dealing with bulky household waste.

Unwanted furniture, electrical appliances, toys, bikes, computers and much more can be collected within just five working days of bookings being taken and householders will know as soon as they book what day and time items will be collected.

More good news is that up to 50% of the items collected are re-used or recycled meaning that many reusable items will help local disadvantaged people furnish their homes, instead of them ending up needlessly in landfill.

Margaret Howarth, a Preesall resident who recently used Bulky Matters said: "A very prompt and efficient service from booking to collection, with good customer service from all staff".

And Dianne Aspinall from Cleveleys said: "A cracking service to be recommended which also helps needy people struggling to furnish their homes."

Councillor Peter Murphy, Cabinet member with responsibility for recycling said: "Think twice before throwing your household items in the skip. By using Bulky Matters you get an efficient service and the chance to help somebody else too."

Bulky Matters costs £18 for up to three items and £6 per additional item. Households receiving council tax benefit or housing benefit are eligible for a 33% discount.

So let 'Bulky Matters' help you make space and someone else smile this year.

To arrange a collection, simply call Wyre Council on 01253 891000.
