Hard Waste Collection

This collection only occurs once a year.

The next collection will be held between July and September 2018. Hard waste material is collected from the kerbside from properties using Council's domestic waste collection service.

What items will be collected?

White goods, fridges, microwaves, mowers, garden tools, hot water systems, heaters, non-electronic electrical items (jugs, hair dryer, corded power tools), furniture, toys, metal fencing (max 1.2m x 1.5m), gutters (max 1.5m long), carpet rolls (max 1.5m wide), and other household items too large for your garbage bin.

What items won't be collected?

Vegetation, motor vehicle parts, tyres, building materials (soil, bricks, rubble, stones, steel), renovation waste, glass, mattresses, liquids (paints, petrol, oil), hazardous materials, e-waste (TVs, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, stereos, DVD & video players, laptops, gaming machines, set-top boxes, other plastic electronics with screens, circuit boards, toner cartridges or inbuilt rechargeable batteries), recyclable material (paper, glass, aluminium cans, rigid plastic containers). Any item deemed to be a work, health and safety issue will not be collected.

How much can I put out?

Each household is allowed to put out a maximum of two cubic metres of material. Any waste in excess or items not accepted will have to be removed by the resident and any items left on the kerb will be considered illegal dumping.

How do I present my hard waste?

  • It is very important that you present your hard waste correctly. This allows recoverable goods to be recycled. Please sort your hard waste into three piles as follows:
    • fridges, freezers and air conditioning units
    • other metal items
    • other junk items
  • Please only put waste out just prior to your area's collection date.
  • Doors must be removed from all large airtight whitegoods and containers before disposal. Fridges and freezers left for disposal could trap and suffocate young children.

Eurobodalla Shire Council accepts no responsibility or liability in respect of any claims, cause of action or loss or damage arising directly or indirectly out of kerbside waste collection.
