To avoid any delay, book your hard rubbish collection online.

When you book a hard rubbish collection online, you must inform us what kind of rubbish you plan to have collected. Cleanaway will use this information to send the right truck to pick up your rubbish. 

We cannot collect items longer than 1.5 metres because the width of the trucks are only 1.5 metres.

To find out how else you can dispose of bulky rubbish, see 'How else can I dispose of my unwanted items?' below.

Please see the Where can I dispose of? webpage for a list of places to dispose of items that you cannot include in your hard rubbish collection.

Charities and opportunity shops (op shops) can also be a great place to donate unwanted items, such as:

  • furniture
  • clothes
  • kitchen items
  • toys

If your items are in good condition they may be useful to someone else.

To find your nearest charity or op shop, see the Donating your goods page on the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations Inc. (NACRO) website.
