DEH advises the public to place bulk waste on the kerbside before the district's scheduled collection date. Place bulk waste in an area that is easily accessible to DEH collection crews and does not obstruct the roadway. DEH will not collect any items that are put out after scheduled dates.
Bulk waste refers to large items such as old furniture, tyres and metal items that are not collected as part of the DEH’s weekly residential pick-up services.
Metal waste must be separated from other bulk waste items. Metal waste includes old appliances, metal furniture and metal roofing.
Vegetative waste, as well as construction and demolition debris will not be collected during the bulk waste removal activity. Please make alternate arrangements to transport these items to the nearest landfill personally or utilize a private service provider.
