Council Cleanup

Council holds general household clean-ups twice a year for disposal of damaged items only. No booking is required.

Dates for the Council Cleanups can vary for each Zone. Visit the Collection Days webpage to see on which two days these occur for your Zone. Council Cleanup days are marked by a red circle on the calendar. All materials must be placed out at the kerb by 4.30pm Sunday evening on the date circled.

For a fee-based service visit Council’s Weekend Transfer Station to arrange a special or extra collection. This is a quote-based service.

For items that are still in good condition, call The Bower’s Collection and Rehoming Service. You will be helping to stop your unwanted items from ending up as waste in landfill.
