Annual Bulky Waste Clean-up

The annual bulky waste clean-up is set to occur early June in our region. Council suggests that residents should put their bulky and scrap metal waste out the weekend before the scheduled collection date, which is Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 June for the Stroud area.

All items are to be placed neatly next to the edge of the kerb and not blocking the footpath at your normal weekly waste collection point. Rural residents who have a common collection point for their weekly waste collection should place their items at the same location. Loose items must be tied securely with rope or string (NOT wire) into bundles or contained in sturdy boxes. Please secure all items to avoid windblown littering

2014 – Waste Collection Calendar

All waste must be separated into three separate piles;

  1. Reuse & E-Waste – TV’s, computers, printers etc
  2. Scrap Metal & Whitegoods – Fridges, stoves, washing machines, bbq’s etc
  3. General Bulky Waste – Furniture, toys, small appliances, bric-a-brac etc
