Where should electrical items be left for collection?
Electrical items are collected separately from other rubbish and should be left at your bin collection point. We are unable to collect your items if you can't present them at your bin collection point. We will not enter your house or garage to collect items.

We will contact you if there are any problems with a collection. Refunds are offered if we are unable to collect. 

Household chemicals or DIY waste can be taken to the tip at Melandra Road in Glossop, or Waterswallows Road in Buxton.
