  • white goods, fridgesImages of acceptable hard waste to be collected

  • heaters
  • non-electronic electrical items (jugs, hair dryer, corded power tools)

  • recyclable material (paper, glass, aluminium cans, rigid plastic containers).

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:

  • Pile 1: fridges, freezers and air conditioning units
  • Pile 2: other metal items
  • Pile 3: other junk items.

Please only put waste out just prior to your area's collection date.

Doors must be removed from all large airtight white goods and containers before disposal. Fridges and freezers left for disposal could trap and suffocate young children.

Other information

Any waste in excess of two cubic metres or items not accepted will need to be removed by the resident. Any items left on the kerb will be considered illegal dumping.

Any item deemed to be a work health and safety issue will not be collected.

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.
