Bulk Waste Service

Council provides a bulk waste collection service for all households twice a year. Council will notify you by letter box drop two weeks prior to your collection date.

Council will collect up to two cubic metres (one box trailer load) of combined waste material, per household.

Items that will be collected via the bulk waste pick up include: bulky household items, metal, green waste, mattresses and e-Waste.  Please place these items in separate piles on the kerb so the different types of waste can be collected by different trucks for recycling or disposal into landfill.  

  • Metals are recycled by a scrap metal merchant
  • Green waste will be recycled into mulch/compost
  • E-waste will be collected, locally dissembled into component parts and then recycled where possible (about 98%)
  • Mattresses will be recycled
  • Other bulky household items go into landfill

Find out your bulk waste collection dates at my.lakemac.com.au or by using the lists below:

Missed Bulk Waste Collection

If Council has not collected your bulk waste one week after the pick up date, please check if your items meet the specifications listed by reading Preparing for Collection.  If you meet the specifications, please contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on 02 4921 0333.  We will arrange to collect the items missed.

If your waste does not conform to the specifications, you will need to remove it from the footpath immediately and make arrangements for alternative disposal. If you do not remove the waste, Council may impose a littering fine.

Additional Green Waste Pick Up

As a result of community consultation and subsequent Council decision on 22 June 2015, this service is no longer being offered. 

Residents wishing to dispose of their garden waste can dispose of it via:

  • the fortnightly kerbside green waste bin service 
  • the twice-yearly bulk waste service (see above for dates, place it out on the kerb in tied bundles)
  • by taking it to the Awaba Waste Management Facility, Wilton Road Awaba (fees apply)
