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.
