Hard waste collection

From October 2019 we will be introducing our new at-call hard waste service.

This FREE service will give you greater flexibility to have your unwanted hard rubbish and branch and pruning picked up at a time that suits you.

This will mean the end of our traditional kerbside collections of hard waste and branch and prunings.

Properties that pay the annual Waste Service charge are eligible for two free collections. Properties with a private bin collection are not eligible for a free service but can purchase an at-call collection.

How do I book?

Bookings are now open!

Book online or by calling 9243 8888.

How many collections per year?

Two free collections per household per year OR you can combine your two collections into one big collection. Collections can be hard waste or branch and prunings or a combination of both.

You can book an additional collection at a cost.

Please note, properties that pay the annual Waste Service charge are eligible for two free collections. Properties with a private bin collection are not eligible for a free service but can purchase an at-call collection. 

How much can I put out?

Approximately two cubic metres (about two trailer loads) per collection. If you are using your two collections in one, you can put out four cubic metres (about four trailer loads).

Place your hard waste within your property boundary, if possible. If you can’t, we’ll let you know the most suitable collection point.

And remember, any items for collection must be safe for two people to lift.

When will my waste be picked up?

Collection will usually take place within ten working days of booking OR you can ring and book the service at a time that suits you down the track.
