The service, which allows for up to to five bulky household items to be uplifted, is free of charge for the first collection.

It was able to be reinstated thanks to assistance from the local authority’s roads and grounds teams, who will now be collecting these items.

Details of the service, and how to arrange an uplift are available on the Falkirk Council website.

Items should be grouped together, outside your property for collection by 6:30am on your advised collection day.

A council spokesperson said: “We will endeavour to collect your uplift on this day, however, due to the current COVID-19 situation we cannot guarantee resources will be available. If your request is not completed, please ensure your uplift is available on the same day the following week.

“If your uplift is still remains outstanding after two weeks, please contact us, quoting your bulky uplift reference number.”

Today is also the first day of the reinstated blue bin collections and householders with excess blue bin recyclables can place them out, in bags, alongside the bin for collection.At this time recycling centres – in Roughmute and Kinneil – remain closed in line with the government’s guidance on non-essential journeys.
