Hard waste Collection 2020


We'll help you remove that extra waste!

A Hardwaste Collection will run again this year from Monday 9 November to Thursday 12 November. 

There is no need to register; residents may place items for collection on their kerbside by 6am on same day as the usual kerbside collection and maximum volumes apply – 2m3 per property.

Council is pleased to announce that rural collection stations will run again this year, see below for further information.

Review the collection details below and for further questions, contact the Waste Management Centre on 6430 5834.


Urban collection details

The urban collection will simply occur on the same day as the usual rubbish collection.

Place your items out no later than 6am on collection day. Please familiarise yourself with items that will and won't be collected and use the checklist to make sure you place your hardwaste collection out correctly.


Rural collection details

There will be 4 drop off points for rural customers:

At each of these locations there will be signs indicating where to deposit your hardwaste. These stations will open on Monday 9 November, giving you four days to place your hardwaste at a rural station.
