Kerbside Bulk Rubbish Collection Kerbside Bulk Rubbish Collection

The Kerbside Collection was held in April 2017.  The next collection date will be held in the first quarter of 2018/19 financial year.

Please read the 2017 Kerbside Collection brochure here for information about what will be collected and how to keep apart waste items. Note:

  • garden waste will not be collected,
  • collection is Monday to Friday, not on weekends, and
  • mattress collection must be arranged through Cleanaway by phoning 13 1339 the week prior to collection.

Council's kerbside bulk rubbish collection is for private houses and units only, and Council will not collect from commercial operators. A maximum of three cubic metres per property, or unit complex will be collected.

The collection will be completed Monday to Friday and not collected on weekends, so items will need to be placed on the kerbside prior to the Monday of the collection week.  The collection will happen at different times for different items, i.e. steel will be collected one day, reuseable items on other day etc.  All items should be collected in the relevant area by the Friday.
