For a full list of what will and won't be collected from your verge please visit our What goes on my verge page.
Mattress collections are in addition to the other pre-booked verge collections per year. You are entitled to a maximum of three (3) mattresses to be collected per financial year, which can be in one booking of three mattresses in total, or up to three bookings with one mattress per booking. You can book your mattress collection at the same time as your other bulk collections, or separately.
Please note: Mattress bases will not be collected as part of a mattress collection, these will need to be included as part of a household bulk waste collection.
Household bulk waste collections
Household bulk waste collections include a mixture of general bulk items such as furniture, as well as recyclable items such as metal and e-waste. Any of these items can be put out as one collection on one collection date. Separate booking requests for different days will count as separate collections.
Below is a brief example of the types of items collected from your verge:
- E-waste - only includes: televisions, computers, monitors and their peripherals (e.g. keyboards).
- Metal - includes: scrap metal, fridges, washing machines, and other bulk household items that are primarily metal such as steel or aluminium framed bikes. Swing sets and trampolines must be dismantled.
- General - includes: chairs, sofas, toys, cardboard (items too large for your normal bin)
The main items that are not accepted are tyres, glass tables and hazardous waste (paint, gas bottles, batteries, flammable liquids and asbestos).
Green waste bulk collections
Green waste equates to a separate collection to the Household bulk waste. Green waste includes: lawn clippings, tree pruning, leaves, twigs, weeds and flowers. Items can be placed into cardboard boxes.
Green waste is reprocessed by the City, therefore we will not collect waste if it is put into plastic bags or contains soil, stones, or rubble.
What we don't collect
The main items that are not accepted include:
- glass tables
- hazardous waste (paint, gas bottles, batteries, flammable liquids and asbestos).
