  • What is bulky waste?

Household bulky waste is any waste generated by normal private household activities that cannot be normally collected because of its nature, size or weight: scrap metal, old mattresses, household appliances, bicycles, jumble…
There are four collections a year and voluminous objects can be dumped at a maximum rate of 3 cubic meters per household and per collection.
