Green Waste Clean Up
Every second Monday (dates below) there is a Council pickup for green waste items.
There are two ways to book your pick up on the next available date:
The cut-off time is 7pm Sunday.
Only 2m2 (like a small box-trailer load) is allowed for single dwellings and 0.5m2 for each unit in multi-unit dwellings.
Place waste within 2m of a convenient entrance to the property, or immediately outside the boundary of the property.
Your waste must not be placed out earlier than the Sunday before Monday morning collection.
Green waste presented in unsuitable containers such as cardboard boxes, plastic or hessian bags; or in the yellow lid recycling will not be collected.
You can use the garbage bin (no lid) but just don't make it too heavy: if you can lift it then the collector can too.
- tree loppings up to 7.5cm in diameter and 1.2m in length
- tree branches and prunings must be tied in bundles
- leaves and grass - loose material must be placed in sturdy, hand held bins marked "green garden waste", or a green garden waste wheelie bin (up to 240L)
- thorns in palms or branches must be in a green waste bin/container - not bundled or loose
- pine Christmas trees (non-artificial) can go in green waste
Items Not Accepted
- tree stumps
- untied loppings exceeding 7.5cm in diameter and 1.2m in length
- building materials, such as timber or bricks
- food waste, including vegetables and fruit
- soils and stones
