Arranging a Bulky Waste Clean-Up

If you have unwanted bulky household items that aren't accepted in your household bin service, you have the opportunity to book a bulky waste clean-up. Items such as bundled and tied garden cuttings, furniture, whitegoods and other household items that are boxed or bagged are accepted for collection.

Unacceptable materials including spikey or sharp vegetation, mirrors or glass panes, chemicals or hazardous waste will not be collected and could lead to further dumped rubbish that you will be required to remove.

Each households can put out three cubic metres (3m3) of waste for each collection. That’s a pile three metres wide by one metre high and one metre deep. An increase of one cubic metre for many households.

Bookings from apartment blocks with six (6) or more units need to be made by a caretaker, building manager or the strata on behalf of the whole building. Individual residents will need to contact their building manager to request a booking. The building manager will coordinate the collection date and will let you know where to put your items.

Advance bookings are essential.  Some periods are busier than others, particularly around summer so the wait times may be longer. Please allow up to three weeks.
