Domestic hard waste collections will take place in October in the towns of Lake Boga, Tresco, Ultima, Woorinen South and Beverford.
Hard waste collections for 2021 will take place in the following townships:
- Lake Boga / Tresco- Monday, 18 October
- Ultima / Woorinen South – Tuesday, 19 October
- Beverford – Wednesday, 20 October
Council’s Director Infrastructure Svetla Petkova encouraged people living in these areas to make use of the biennial collection.
“This is a great way for residents in our rural towns to have a spring clean, to clear out unwanted household items like old furniture, white goods, scrap metal, electrical items, tools, mowers and timber,” she said.
“The collection is rotated around, so that each rural town has a collection every two years.”
Ms Petkova said there were some requirements that residents needed to follow to make sure their hard waste was collected.
“Items collected must be able to be lifted by two people to shoulder height and items must be no longer than 1.5 metres. We will need clear access to nature strips on collection day,” she said.
“A brochure will be delivered to mailboxes to provide information about what can and what cannot be placed out for collection.”
All materials for collection must be placed on nature strips prior to the collection date. This is a residential collection only and no commercial waste will be accepted.
