Annual hard waste collection

Council provides a free kerbside hard waste collection once a year for residential properties that use Council's domestic waste collection service. The pick-up takes place from mid-July to mid-September, with dates and locations advertised from June each year.

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 to separate your 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 before 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.

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.
