Household Clean Up


Clean-up requirements

When is the next event?

Our next Household Kerbside Clean Up Collection for our urban areas is scheduled for March 2017.

Residents should refer to their 2016/17 waste and recycling calendar to find out their scheduled collection date.  Waste zone maps and calendars for each zone are available on our urban residential waste services page.

Materials can only be placed on the kerbside one week from the scheduled collection date.

Residents are reminded that items must be of a size and weight that can be safely and capably lifted by one person.

Metal items need to be sorted into a separate pile, and fridges, freezers and stoves must be dismantled.

The total maximum quantity of unwanted goods we will accept is one cubic metre.
