Hard waste, bundled branches and metals collection

2018 incentive 

Click here to read more about Council's incentives for the 2018 Hard Waste, Bundled Branches and Metals Collection.

We have one combined hard waste, bundled branches and metals collection each year.

The collection runs from January to April. Find out when your collection will be.

You can place your items on your nature strip by no later than the Sunday before your collection date. Make sure its not put out earlier than one week before.

Your items need to be in a distinct and separate pile to make it easily identifiable.

Items should only be placed at your weekly garbage collection point for removal and not in another location.
