Household appliances, furniture, and other items too large to be handled by the weekly DEH collection crews should be placed by the roadside where it is easily accessible to DEH collection crews.  Metals and vegetation should also be separated from other bulk items. 

In the case of any construction and demolition debris, hazardous material, electronics, and tyres, persons are required to make alternative arrangements to transport these materials to the nearest landfill as these items will not be collected during the bulk waste removal activity.

During this clean-up exercise, the collection of residential waste continues as scheduled. However, garbage should be stored in sturdy containers prior to its collection and properly place in their respective enclosures.
