For the Safety of our Collectors:

  • Items should not be more than 2m in length or 40kg in weight.
  • Please separate your building and green waste and neatly stack it to eliminate the chance of anything blowing away.
  • Place your items near the kerb for ease of pick up.

Unfortunately, there are items that we cannot collect, and they include:

  • Car bodies or parts (Free for residential users to deposit at Tip)

To ensure no street is missed, each street will be checked off as it is completed, and residents will be notified if non-compliant items cannot be collected.

This service excludes commercial and industrial properties, caravan parks or vacant blocks.
