You must separate your waste into separate piles because:
- It will help us reduce waste going to landfill.
- Different trucks will be used to collect the different types of recycled goods.
- It makes collecting waste more efficient thereby reducing costs to the City and to you.
- It will ensure all of your booked waste is collected from the verge.
It is very important to correctly select what types of items will be put out when you complete your booking.
If you do not select the correct types of items when you book, some of your items may not be collected, and may result in you having to pre-book another collection at another time.
Items can be placed on your front verge, side verge or in a laneway. Please do not obstruct the footpath, your normal bin service or the line of sight for motorists.
A diagram of how to separate out different types of bulk verge items is shown below.
Note that this example shows all three bulk verge collections options (Green waste, Household waste and Mattresses), you may not have included all of these options in your booking.
Please make sure there is a gap between the different types of waste items you have selected where you have selected more than one type of waste in your booking.
