Spring Hard Rubbish

By Nicole Payne

Spring is a great time for cleaning out unwanted items from cupboards, sheds and gardens before the Christmas rush.

You can dispose of them via Council’s hard waste and bundled branches booking service. Each Bayside residential property can book two collections each calendar year.

Many hard waste materials such as scrap steel, white goods and mattresses are recycled and bundled branches are mulched and used in the agricultural industry to avoid disposal to landfill.

When you book a hard waste collection, items should be placed in neat piles with hard waste separated from bundled branches. The combined size of all items must not exceed four cubic metres.

You can make a booking online once all your items are placed on the nature strip.

Items accepted for hard waste can include:

  • Furniture including chairs and couches
  • Mattresses – limit of 2 mattresses or 1 mattress and 1 base
  • Household appliances and whitegoods – fridges with doors removed
  • Toys, sporting goods and dismantled playground equipment
  • Carpet and linoleum – rolled and tied, no longer than 2m and not exceeding 1 cubic metre
  • Timber – neatly tied, no more than 10 pieces or exceeding 2m in length
  • Metal, tin and iron not exceeding 2m in length
  • e-Waste including printers, monitors, computers, TVs
  • Large branches in bundles of less than 150mm in diameter and 1.8m in length (small garden prunings should be included in your green waste bin).

The hard waste and bundled branches booking service takes a break over Christmas. Bookings close at 5pm Wednesday 21 December 2016 and re-open from 8.30am Monday 9 January 2017.
