Guidelines to ensure waste is collected

  • Place waste on the verge by 7am on the scheduled start date for your area. The contractor will only check the verge once.
  • If you are sharing a verge with a neighbour, notify the City prior to collection start date.
  • Place waste on the verge one metre (1m) back from the kerb, taking care not to obstruct footpaths, bus shelters, line of sight or create a safety hazard
  • Place items clear of vehicles, trees, water meters, fences, letterboxes, reticulation and sprinklers to allow collection without causing damage
  • Make sure there is no more than 4 cubic metres of general junk and mattresses, and no more than 4 cubic metres combined metals and white goods or 6 cubic metres for green waste
  • Excess waste will not be collected (waste over the size limit or volume limit)
  • Do not put bulk junk out prior to your nominated weekend as you may receive a $200 litter infringement
  • Green waste can be placed out two weekends prior, however is best placed on the verge the weekend prior to your start date.
