When to put your hard waste out

Make sure you have booked your collection before you place your waste on the naturestrip so we know it is not illegally dumped waste.

Place your hard waste materials out on the weekend before your collection is due to take place. 

Putting your hard rubbish out

Keep your pile neat, tidy, stick to the size limit and only place acceptable items out for collection. For more information on acceptable items see what can be collected.

  • Place mattresses to the side of the pile.
  • Place all e-waste together.
  • Remove fridge and freezer doors.
  • Make sure there are no hazardous or unacceptable items.
  • Place small loose items in a non-returnable box (not in plastic bags).


Booked collections cannot be changed or cancelled.
