Bulky & Scrap Metal Clean-Up

Dungog Shire Council is providing a Bulky Waste Clean-Up. This will allow collection of larger items and will enable items suitable for recycling to be diverted from landfill thereby maximising the life of this valuable resource. The annual Kerbside Green Waste clean-up will still be conducted later this year. Details will be advertised.

Who is the Service For?

All residences currently receiving a weekly waste collection service.

When does it happen?

Collections will commence on Monday the 11th of February. Please put your waste out the weekend before.
NOTE: Collections may occur at any time during the allotted time period.

Where do I put it?

Please place your waste neatly next to the edge of the kerb and not blocking the footpath at your normal weekly collection point. Waste material deposited in any other location (other than your usual collection location) will be considered to be illegally dumped and action may be taken against persons responsible. Please secure items to avoid windblown littering and separate bulky and metal waste as these will be collected in separate pick ups.

How much can I put out?

The volume of Waste collected from any one property shall not exceed two cubic metres.
