How to arrange a collection

Contact Watson Contract Cleaning Services, when you arrange your collection they will ask you for your name, address and telephone number and a description of the items you would like collected.

They will confirm whether they can collect your items for you, how much it will cost and when they will collect. If you are elderly, infirm or disabled and need assistance please mention this when you contact them.

You need to put the item for collection outside your home, where you would normally put your bins for collection.
