Bulk Kerbside Collection

Did you know Shellharbour City Council offers an on-call Bulk Kerbside Collection?

You can arrange to have 2m3 ( 2m wide x 1m deep x 1m high) or 200kg of unwanted household items collected from your property (fees apply). Collections generally occur on the Wednesday of each week (Public Holidays excluded) at the discretion of the Harbour Cities team.

Additional tip fees apply for tyres and each mattress and ensemble base. Your fee is utilised to cover the cost of transporting your old mattress locally to Resource Recovery Australia where it will be recycled and saved from landfill. Please place tyres, mattresses, scrap metal and greenwaste in a seperate pile next to your general waste pile for easy removal.
