Bulk Rubbish Collections  

When is my next bulk verge collection? 

The City provides two bulk rubbish collections each financial year. This collection enables you to place hard waste, Greenwaste, mattresses, metal and e-waste on the verge for collection.  

Did you know that more than 75% of all bulk verge waste from the City is recycled? 

Place your materials out for collection as specified to ensure public safety and the prevention of property damage. Your waste will not be collected it if doesn't conform with bulk collection conditions or is placed out after the scheduled collection date.

Things to note:

  • Bulk rubbish is not to be placed on reserves, vacant land, parks, median strips or driveways.

  • Ensure your bulk collection materials are not more than 6 cubic metres. 
  • Place your bulk rubbish on your verge before 6am on the Monday of your collection week. 
  • Check that pedestrians, cyclists and motorists still have clear visibility from the road. Keep rubbish 1m clear of sprinklers, water meters, power poles and street signs to avoid any damage during the collection process. 
  • Keep rubbish clear of the footpath and place it only on the verge adjacent to your property. 
  • Household items, greenwaste, metals, electronic waste (e-waste) and mattresses are to be placed in separate piles.
