Private waste collectors can be used, but you have a legal responsibility to check beforehand that they are a licensed waste carrier and will make sure that your waste is dealt with safely and legally. 

LoveJunk is an online marketplace that can match you to nearby licensed waste carriers and reuse charities.

Bulky waste, including resueable furniture  and  large items that don’t fit in your bin, can still be taken to Regis Road reuse and recycling centre.
