Hard Waste Collection
Got big junk and no trailer? Luckily we offer hard waste collection each year.
The 2016 Hard Waste Collection took place between 27 June and 5 August.
The 2017 Hard Waste Collection is proposed to be at a similar time as 2016 - June/July August.
Your rates fund the Annual Hard Waste Collection, so there is no extra charge.
How much can I get rid of?
We will collect no more than 3 cubic metres from each property – that’s about 1 trailer load in volume.
