Our collection do's and don'ts
There are certain items we can and can't collect when picking up your hard waste. Some items have a maximum weight or size limit, or requirements in the way they must be placed on your nature strip.
When placing your items on the nature strip, please ensure:
- items are placed on your nature strip at least 2 days prior to collection
