Rural bulky waste collections did not take place in 2020 and 2021 due to the disruption caused by Covid, a shortage of HGV drivers, and the need to prioritise the collection of household bins.

This free service restarts in Bromham and Wootton on Saturday, June 18 running throughout the summer with the last collection on Saturday, September 24.

Collections will enable residents to safely and responsibly dispose of household items.
