Statement from Homemakers
Homemakers will be restarting its bulk collection service to Monmouthshire residents as part of its SLA with Monmouthshire County Council on Monday May 18th 2020. We will be adopting changes to our service in line with COVID-19. We will start taking collection requests via phone only at 9 am on the 18th. All items due for collection will need to be paid over the phone when the collection is arranged. Our premises’ are shut to the general public so please do not attempt to come to our sites to pay for your collection. All items agreed are required to be placed outside at the front of your property as close to the pavement /main road as possible. We will not go into any property, garden or yards to collect items.
Please do not ask our crew to take any extra items other than those paid for. Please could you also respect social distancing and let our crew complete the job safely and stay 2 metres away from them at all times, and do not try to help no matter what the situation.
At this stage due to nearly two months backlog we will only take 3 items at a cost of £15.
If your collection was cancelled due to lock-down and you asked us to recontact you, we will do so.
Collections can be arranged on 01873 857618. If the lines are engaged please either leave a message or ring later. The lines will be manned 9 am-5pm Monday to Friday.
All other areas of Homemakers operations are still closed. This includes our showroom, warehouse and house clearance service until further notice.
Many thanks for your co-operation, support and understanding.
