Hard Waste

Currently Council is conducting a review of the delivery of the Hard Waste Collection Service.

Community consultation on the hard waste service closed in late March 2016 and Council considered the results of that consultation in April 2016.

  • Most people (63%) said they would prefer an at-call hard waste service.
  • Only a minority of people (36%) said they would use a dump voucher.

Based on those results, Council is looking into a changeover to an at-call service and use of Dump vouchers have been deferred by Council at this stage.

All households will be advised of the change once a final decision has been made. Please be aware that we are not able to take any hard waste bookings at this stage.

The only other alternative at this stage is to take your items to Councils Transfer Station located at Toogood Avenue BEVERLEY. Please note that fees are charged for use of this service.

Keep your hard waste safe and tidy

It is your responsibility to ensure that the hard waste outside your property is placed and maintained safely until collected - even if it is moved by other people.

Put your waste out the weekend before it is due for collection - no sooner
Leave plenty of room on the footpath for people to walk past
Don't leave anything sharp or hazardous on the footpath
Remove all doors from fridges and freezers
Don't stack your waste too high
Lie taller items down (e.g. wardrobes)
