CPSC News #6: Hard Waste Clean Up

1st November in Clarendon Vale

15th November in Rokeby


You were part of changing your community …!

Did you know that the Clarence City Council has an annual Hard Waste Clean-Up?

This is a chance for you to put out large items that could not normally be collected through the usual wheelie bin rubbish collections.  The service is free to residents whose rubbish is usually picked up by the Council garbage collection service.

On the day of the Hard Waste Clean-Up in your area, put your items out on the nature strip 1 metre away from your wheelie bins. Your items should be able to fit inside an area that is 2 metres wide by 2 metres deep, and no more than a metre high. Your items should be able to be easily lifted onto a truck by two people.

Don’t worry if your items are not all collected at the same time because there are a few trucks that will be collecting different types of rubbish throughout the day. The collection starts at 6:00am and finishes at the end of the day.
