How and When Do I Place My Items Out for Collection?

  • Please place all your items out on the kerbside in front of your property the night before (Sunday) your collection commences in your area in a neat pile.
  • Secure loose items to avoid being blown around
  • Place all your metal items together on the side of the pile so it can be easily accessed for recycling 
  • Avoid blocking driveways, letterboxes and footpaths
  • Ensure items are away from any overhead obstructions like low power lines and trees 

If other residents in your street are participating please keep your piles separate. The pile will be removed during the week of collection in your area. 

Report Illegal Dumping (RID)

If you see large illegally dumped items, the best thing you can do is report this through the EPA's RID ONLINE tool. 

When you report illegal dumping, you help the EPA and local council:

  • Protect human health and the environment
  • Detect and penalise dumpers
  • Find and clean up dumped waste
  • Identify dumping hot spots so we can develop strategies to prevent this behaviour in future in your local area.
