Council's kerbside bulk rubbish collection is for private houses and unit complexes only, and Council will not collect from commercial operators. Limitations will apply – a maximum of three cubic metres per property, or unit complex.

The collection will be completed during the week 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.
