Hard Waste & E-waste
There are many ways to responsibly deal with your hard waste and electronic waste.
Dumping hard rubbish or electrical items on verges, in street gutters or on vacant land is illegal! Please report any illegal dumping to the Council on 08 8366 4555.
Booked hard waste and e-waste collection service
Households and not-for-profit organisations are entitled to two free hard waste and e-waste collection services that can be scheduled any time during the financial year.
Please note that the Council’s hard waste collection service does not extend to commercial properties. Waste generated by commercial properties is considered an operational business cost and is expected to be managed by the business.
