Peterborough City Council is offering one-off free bulky waste collections at four locations across the city on Bank Holiday Monday.

The collections on May 25 are part of the Love Peterborough, go green, keep it clean campaign, run by the council and Amey.

They have been organised to help residents with a spring clean and to provide information on how to correctly dispose of household waste.

Residents can get rid of their old sofa or broken desk and are invited to bring their waste along to the trucks at specific times and locations:

9am - 11am

Orton Centre, Orton Goldhay

Braymere Road, Hampton (next to the memorial bench/ ross)

11.15am - 1pm

Hampton Court, Westwood Centre

Gladstone Street/English Street - turning circle area

Items which cannot be taken away include asbestos, tins of paint, tyres, gas cylinders, concrete, garden refuse, sinks and toilets.

Anyone with questions on disposing of waste, or anyone who wants to really spring clean and arrange a paid for collection, should visit

or call 01733 747474.
