Household Waste Clean Up

Every second Monday (dates below) there is a Council pickup for household 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.

Small and light items should be put in unwanted containers if possible or plastic bags (if booking by phone you can advise if you want to keep your containers).

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