Residents can now arrange for their bulky waste items to be collected online through this weblink – LINK
The Liberal Democrats introduced a £25 charge for collecting bulky items when they ran Brent Council in Coalition with their Tory partners. This created a bizarre situation where residents who arranged by phone to have bulky items collected and paid £25 would have their items collected within two weeks. Dumpers got a better deal as those selfishly throwing items out on to the street would have items collected in a matter of days. At the time, this was famously branded the Dumper’s Charter.
Brent Labour’s number one manifesto pledge was to make bulky item collection free for residents again and we delivered that within a matter of months of regaining control of Brent Council in May 2010.
