Wiltshire Council run a special service for the collection of bulky household waste.
What you can put in your Black Box and Blue Bin has changed. Implementation date for the change was 9 Mar 20. Collection day for Blue Bins & Black Boxes will also change. Under the new system: glass and textiles would still go in the black box. Anything else recyclable could go in the Blue lidded bin. Examples of items that can go in the blue lidded bin are plastic bottles, pots, tubs, trays, cardboard boxes, food and drink cartons, paper, food and drink cans, aerosols and foil.
Normal household refuse is collected fortnightly on a Monday. Full calendar here

There is a charge of £50 for the collection of garden waste from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021.
Existing customers Wiltshire Council has postponed the renewal process for garden waste collection until 15 June, due to the pressure on council services because of COVID-19. Garden waste collections will continue, provided the council's contractor has sufficient staff to maintain service delivery.
Customers who have already paid for the garden waste collection service will continue to have their garden waste collected until 30 June 2020. Residents should continue to place their garden waste bins out with their red stickers as usual. The council will contact you in due course with details of the renewal process. Collections will continue from 1 July.
