Hard waste - further collection information

Things you should know about the hard waste collection service.


The hard waste trial service begins on 1 April 2019.

Bookings can be made from 1 March 2019.

When to put out your collection

A reminder message will be sent to you before your booked waste collection week.

Please put your hard waste out by the Sunday night prior as collections can occur anytime between the scheduled Monday and Friday. If the hard waste is not put out this will count as your one service for the financial year.


Cancellations must be made no later than the Wednesday before the booked week.

If this isn’t done then the booking will count as your one service for the financial year and you will be unable to make another booking until the following financial year.

What happens to the hard waste?

All recyclable material will be directed to recycling businesses. The hard waste that cannot be recycled will be sent to landfill.

Service fees

It is free to book one hard waste collection each financial year.

A $6.80 increase was included in the 2018-2019 municipal waste charges to enable the service until the end of June 2019. The remaining 12 months will be funded through the 2019-2020 municipal waste charges.
