This Service is only available to households where a waste charge is paid.
How much hard waste will be collected?
Households can book 2 collections of up to 1 cubic metre per financial year, or 1 collection of up to 2 cubic metres. One collection is 1 cubic metres – 1 metres long x 1 metre high x 1 metre wide. In feet this equates to 3ft x 3ft x 3ft.
Unacceptable items will not be collected - please check the listing below of what will and will not be collected.
Items placed on the nature strip without a booking are considered as illegal dumping and may result in a fine.
You should receive a confirmation email immediately after booking outlining your collection week, when and where to place out the waste, the acceptable and unacceptable waste and the amount of waste that can be placed out.
