Why waste when you can re-use? An innovative new partnership is set to transform Blackpool’s bulky waste into a resource to benefit us all. Until now Blackpool residents using the council’s bulky collections service had to put their unwanted items outside in the wet before they were collected and sent to landfill – regardless of whether or not they could be reused. Now there’s a whole new story. Bulky Matters in Blackpool is a partnership between Blackpool Council and social enterprise Furniture Matters; and will replace the council’s current bulky collection system from Monday 2nd November 2009; thus ensuring that our borough’s bulky waste is put to good use. What the service will offer customers:
Customers will be informed not only what day their collection will be but also whether it is in the morning, afternoon or evening - arranged at a time to suit you. The service will operate Monday to Saturday. Bulky Matters’ staff will collect items from inside your property which allows more chance of the item being diverted from landfill and being put to good use in the local community. Wider benefits to Blackpool residents will include: • • • At least 40% of the items collected will be reused or recycled Reusable items will be cleaned, repaired and tested for safety Reusable items will be passed on to local charities and reuse organisations to benefit local people • Items that cannot be re-used whole but have reusable parts will be stripped down, with the useful parts being stored and used to repair similar items • Local unemployed people will gain practical volunteering and training opportunities

How to book your collection:
To help cover some of the additional costs of this new service the following charges will apply: £18 for up to three items and £6 per additional item thereafter. Households receiving council tax benefit or housing benefit are eligible for a 50% discount. This service and the charges quoted include the collection of televisions and refrigeration. The service will collect the following: Wooden furniture, soft furnishings, domestic appliances, IT and home entertainment, household toys and games (not garden), all types of bicycles and small musical instruments (not pianos), and much more! (See overleaf for the full DO / DO NOT TAKE list).
