Place your waste out two days before your zone’s scheduled pick-up.

Any earlier and it will be considered illegal dumping and result in a fine.

“It’s important to familiarise yourself with Council’s guidelines for bulky waste collection and to know what items are accepted and what items are not,” explained Paul De Szell, Council’s Director of Liveable Communities.

Each household will receive a brochure in the mail to advise of accepted items, zones and dates for collection.

Waste must be separated into two piles.

When combined, the two piles are no bigger than two cubic metres, the size of a box trailer. One pile should be for scrap metal and white goods, and a separate pile for general waste. Each pile is collected separately.

Scrap metal is sent for recycling.

All other waste goes to landfill.

Mattresses are not collected as part of the bulky waste service.

However, a maximum of two wire-spring mattresses or one mattress and bed base per household can be dropped off for free at your nearest Waste Management Centre during the bulky waste collection period for your region.

“We are calling on MidCoast residents to help keep their region attractive and safe during the clean-up,” Mr De Szell added.

“That’s why we’ve broken our region into specific collection zones, each with its own collection schedule.

“We also ask that you consider the environment when putting out your waste.

For example, electronic waste can be recycled for free at our Community Recycling Centres all year round.”

The Great Lakes bulky waste collection will continue zone by zone across the region until 24 June.
