General Clean Up Collection

Booking Service for General & Metal Clean Up Collections for Mainland Residents

Residents can book a general clean up collection with Council as the need arises.

This service replaces the previous twice-yearly scheduled service.


  • Phone 9970 1233.
  • Book online.

PLEASE NOTE - Due to increased demand over the holiday period, all available spots for clean-up service in ALL areas have been filled for the remainder of the year. All future bookings will be made in the 2016 calendar year 

  • Residents can book two collections every twelve months
  • Your collection day will be on the same day as your waste service
  • Must be booked a minimum of two business days prior, longer waiting periods may apply during periods of high demand
  • Max three (3) cubic metres in total per collection
  • Only place pre-booked material on the kerbside the night before collection to avoid illegal dumping
  • Please place metals in a separate pile. Remove any doors from fridges and furniture. All large items (e.g. trampolines, clothes hoists, outdoor heaters) must be disassembled and in parts that can be readily loaded by one person.
  • Bookings must be made before any material is placed out for collection. 

General Clean Up

Help Council recover and recycle as much as possible. When you book your service tell us if you have any of these items to be collected: whitegoods, metals and mattresses.

Residents are reminded that computers and TVs will not be collected.  Up to 15 unwanted computer and TV items can be taken to Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre free of charge.
