Crunch Waste Service

To News Editors for Immediate Use                                                                         

Wednesday 10 June 2015           

Easy way to dispose of excess domestic waste

Residents who would like to get rid of excess household waste can take advantage of the Crunch Service run by Allerdale Borough Council.

The Crunch Service is designed to assist residents who need to dispose of more domestic waste than they have room for in their wheelie bins, as well as bulky items like furniture and carpets. The service was introduced to towns in parts of the borough where there are no existing Household Waste Recycling Centres.

The Crunch Service will be at the following areas on Saturday 13 June:

  • Silloth, Skinburness Road Car Park, 8am – 9:45am
  • Aspatria, Queen Street Car Park, 10am – 11:15am
  • Cockermouth, Wakefield Road Car Park, 8am – 11:30am

What we can accept for the Crunch Service:

  • household waste
  • furniture
  • carpets

What we can’t accept for the Crunch Service:

  • commercial waste
  • fridges
  • microwaves
  • washing machines
  • TVs
  • fluorescent tubes
  • batteries
  • Liquids (oil, paint etc.)
  • asbestos
  • bricks & rubble

Residents are asked not to dump items at the crunch location. The Council asks that residents who arrive early with their waste are patient and wait for the collection vehicle.
