Bulk collections for properties with no verge

If you have no or little verge you will still have access to the bulk hard waste and green waste verge collection services.

Please contact the City and request where to locate your bulk greens or the bulk hard waste skip bin. The collection contractor will visit your address and suggest the best location for the services.

Please be aware you may need to sign a consent form if the skip bin is to be placed on a paved or hard surfaced area.

Booking a bulk hard waste service

Book the on-request Bulk Hard Waste Service to dispose of unwanted/broken larger household items.

Residents are entitled to the following three services, per refuse charge, per financial year (1 July-30 June)

  • One collection of up to four white goods (fridges, washers, ovens etc.)
  • One collection of up to six mattresses
  • One three cubic metre skip bin for bulky household waste, or one lounge suite collection.

Quotas cannot be accumulated for use in the following years. New allowances commence in line with the new financial year (1 July). Services booked after 30 June will come out of the following years bulk hard waste allowances.


The on-request service allows residents to book skip bins for a time when friends, family and neighbours are able to assist. However, the City understands that there may be exceptional circumstances where residents have a genuine need for additional assistance to get items from the verge into the skip bin. If this situation occurs you are encouraged to speak with the City’s Waste team to discuss the options available.

  • Have your waste ready (within your property line) to go into the skip for quick and easy disposal.
  • Book the skip early so you don’t miss out on the dates you want and or for when your friends and family can help.
  • Make your allocation go further, consider using the lounge collection as your bulk allocation, then purchase a bulk hard waste skip for the City’s special rate.
