Limited, Booked Spring Hard Waste Collection
The next limited, booked Spring hard waste collection will run between 9 September and 29 November in 2019.
Bookings open on 28 August 2019. PLACES FILL QUICKLY – YOU ARE ADVISED TO BOOK EARLY BY CALLING 8470 8888.
Council makes available a limited number of pre-booked hard waste collections in Spring between September and December each year. These are only available for residents who have booked in advance by calling Council on 8470 8888.
The Spring collection is offered to complement the Winter collection for those people, like students, whose peak need is Spring time when they are moving house. There are a very limited number of places available in the Spring collection, so residents are advised to book early as places fill quickly. Residents are advised of the exact date of their collection at the time of booking.
Winter Area-Based Collection (No booking required)
The next Council-wide, area-based winter collection will take place in winter 2019.
We set the dates and times for these each year and collect from a whole area at the same time.
You will receive our hard waste and recycling brochure with the exact dates of your collection two weeks before your collection week.
