No time to waste for hard rubbish collection


KINGSTON Council’s free annual hard waste collection is set to take place from September through until October.

Hard waste collection will begin on 24 September in Kingston’s northern suburbs before progressively moving south each week until the end of October.

Households can use the collection to safely dispose of a range of household items, electronics and metal, including timber, household furniture, mattresses, small car parts, tools, garden equipment, and large electrical equipment.

“Keep an eye out for the letter we are sending to every home to let you know when your hard rubbish collection is taking place, or you can check our website for details,” Kingston Acting Mayor Georgina Oxley said.

“This is an ideal time of the year to do some spring cleaning and safely dispose of hard waste rubbish.”

Residents can place up to four cubic metres of approved hard waste items out for the annual kerbside collection.

“To avoid any confusion and to reduce unnecessary landfill, please take note of what you can and cannot put out with your hard waste,” said Cr Oxley.

Items must be ready by 6am on the day of collection.

Kingston residents can also book an additional hard rubbish collection throughout the year for a $50 fee.
