Each financial year, the City provides three residential bulk verge collections. These consist of one general junk collection and two green waste collections.
- Rubbish collection dates
- Recycling collection dates
- Green waste collection dates
- General junk collection dates
- Reduce illegal dumping and nuisance pickers by placing items on the verge of your property no earlier than 7 days prior to your collection date
- Separate the following from general junk – electronic goods, computers and TVs, mattresses, white goods and scrap metals, as the City recycles these items
- Do not place waste on vacant properties or public reserves.
- If any item doesn’t comply with guidelines, it won’t be collected. You must remove it within 7 days or you may be fined.
If your items are in good condition, donate them to family, friends, your local charity or Facebook Buy Nothing group.
