Special uplifts

The special uplift service provides two different types of collections for East Ayrshire residents:

Bulky uplifts are for larger items such as household furniture, carpets, electrical items and white goods.

DIY and demolition debris such as windows, doors, garden sheds, bricks, slabs or builders rubble, trees, fencing, coal bunkers, storage heaters, asbestos and vehicle parts will not be collected.

We also separate as many materials as possible for recycling or re-use. This means uplifts may require more than one vehicle or visit.
