Items - how to present them for pickup

  • items must not be placed out earlier than the Sunday before the Monday collection
  • put items outside the property boundary, or within 2m of an entrance
  • large items and whitegoods should be put on a main street frontage and not in a rear laneway (so the large truck needed can access them)
  • small and light items should be put in unwanted containers such as cardboard boxes or plastic bags, and these will be taken as part of the clean up.


E-waste and Other Items

E-waste is not accepted in this clean up - please use the CRC.

If you are unsure about an item - check our A-Z of Waste & recycling.


Or try Rehoming?
