Collection Guidelines

When putting out items for the Kerbside Collection in Ferny Grove and Keperra, please take note of the following:

  • Keep the piles tidy on the kerb so the footpath or roadway is kept clear.
  • Remember that the Council will not collect piles larger than two cubic metres (equal to a small box trailer load).
  • Remove doors from refrigerators and cupboards.
  • Be careful not to leave sharp or dangerous objects.
  • Make sure that items can easily and safely be lifted by two people.
  • Items must be secured if severe weather is expected.

Donate Usable Items

Check if some items in your pile are usable. If there are items that can still be used, donate them. This is a big help in reducing the waste sent to the landfill, plus, you get to help others in need.
