Annual Hard Waste Collection


My Local App

The Annual Hard Waste Collection dates are now available on the ‘My Local’ app. On the app you can set up waste collection reminders, report an issue and find nearby parks and key information on Council activities.

If you already have the app, you may need to reset your home address in settings to enable the hard waste information and notifications.


How to use this service

During November 2017 on the 1st greenwaste collection day of November for your general area, put your items out on the nature strip neatly next to, but at least 1 metre from your wheelie bins. To confirm the collection day please check the following link Collection days and areas. These items should not be placed out until the evening before your collection day and at latest prior to 6.00am on your collection day.

This is a chance to put out large items of rubbish which cannot normally be collected through Council’s wheelie bin service.

The items should fit within an area 2 metres wide by 2 metres deep and stand no more than a metre high (4m3). The items must be able to be easily lifted onto a truck by two people.

This Council service is free to residents who receive a Council garbage collection service and is intended for the collection of large items such as:

  • Furniture
  • Mattresses
  • Household appliances
  • Junk – bric-a-brac
  • White goods
  • Electronic waste (E-Waste)
  • Timber (max 1.5m in length)

Rural Residential areas, which do not receive the greenwaste service will receive the Annual Hard Waste Collection service. See locations below for dates in your location.

Collection commences at 6.00am and all items that comply should be collected by the end of the day.

Don’t be concerned if only some of your items are collected at one time. There will be a series of different trucks each collecting different items at different times throughout the day.
