General Bulky Waste Collection

Bulky waste information

Blayney Shire Council is providing a Bulky Waste Clean Up. This will allow collection of larger items and will enable items suitable for recycling to be diverted from landfill thereby maximising the life of this valuable resource.

Who is the service for?

All Blayney Shire Council domestic residences currently receiving a weekly waste and fortnightly recycling collection service.

When does it happen?

Collections will commence on Monday 24th August, so please put your bulky waste out the weekend before.

Where do I put my bulky waste items?

All items are to be placed neatly next to the edge of the kerb and not blocking the footpath at your normal weekly collection point.

All waste must be separated into four separate piles

  • Scrap metal and white goods
  • General bulky waste
  • Bundled organics
  • E-waste

The above items will be collected in separate pick-ups. Please ensure items are placed on the kerb accordingly.

Loose items and organics must be tied securely with rope or string (not wire) into bundles or contained in sturdy boxes.  Please secure all items to avoid windblown littering.

How much can I put out?

The total volume of waste presented for collection must not exceed two cubic meters.
