Please be advised, in recent weeks we have seen a huge increase from residents in the demand for bulky furniture collections. As a result of this increased demand, the next available collection dates are approximately 4 weeks away. Should you decide to have your items removed by an independent operator instead, then please ensure that they are registered with the Environment Agency to carry waste and ask to see their registration of carriers licence. Please note that this is
NOT the permit for the Household Waste Recycling Centres that is issued by Halton Borough Council, this permit does not authorise businesses to carry your waste and could constitute a serious breach of Environmental Legislation.
