Bulky Waste and Green Waste Kerbside Collection

We hold an annual bulky waste and green waste kerbside collection. 

We will collect the bulky waste and the green waste at different times in the same week so please separate the bulky waste and the green waste into two piles. Please leave the waste on the nature strip before 8.00 am on the Monday of your collection week.

If you are a senior resident and have disabilities, we can help you move the waste to the kerbside. Please contact us on 1300 676 243 if you would like assistance.

Before putting an item out for collection, consider if it could be reused or repurposed by someone else. Why not sell online or have a garage sale?

Do the right thing - rules for collection

  1. Sort your waste into two piles. Each pile must be no more than 2 cubic metres - this equals the amount that would fit in a standard (7x4 foot) box trailer. The bulky waste and green waste will be collected at different times in the same week.

  2. Make sure individual items don't weigh more than 30 kg and can be handled by two people. 

  3. Tie loose items in a bundle or put in a sturdy box (no plastic bags).
