Improvements will be introduced to make it easier for people to dispose of their bulky waste in Barrow.
Barrow Borough Council, and its contractor FCC, has simplified its collection service and the changes take effect from April 1.
Residents will be able to have up to five large items collected from their property for a charge of £15.
Each additional item booked for collection during the same visit will be charged at £3 each up to a maximum of 10 items.
From April 1 2022, bulky waste collections will be charged at a minimum of £20 for up to five items with additional items, up to a maximum of ten, charged at £4 each.
The service will be reviewed annually from April 2023.
Ann Thomson, Barrow Borough Council leader and the authority’s lead member for cleaner, greener neighbourhoods, said: “The charge for collecting large items hasn’t changed for at least a decade in the borough, during which time the service has required a greater subsidy from the council.
“The changes adopted from April 1 onwards will make things much clearer and, crucially, will be fair for all residents.
“The service remains excellent value for money and is the cheapest in the county by a long way – something we are rightly proud to be able to offer.”
A review was conducted of the service this year to consider how easy it was to use for residents, the process of administering the service and the overall cost to the council.
The service has previously offered collection of items based on 10 minutes of loading time.
The review concluded that this could sometimes lead to confusion about how many items could be removed from a property in a single visit.
Councillor Thomson added: “The changes to the bulky waste collection service will make it far more user friendly for residents and more efficient all round.
“We know our residents take a huge sense of pride in the areas in which they live. An improved service will help to keep our communities cleaner and more pleasant for us all to enjoy.”
