Garbage and Recycling Collections

Garbage and recycling collection days


  • To ensure your bin is emptied, it must be placed kerbside/roadside the night prior to collection day.
  • Building materials, pipes, wires, planks of wood and concrete are not domestic waste and must not be placed in your garbage bin. If you have any waste you wish to dispose of that is not domestic waste, please contact Council for advice on disposal.
  • The lifting arms on our vehicles have a weight capacity of 85 kg and cannot lift a bin over 85 kg. Large items (eg concrete) can create havoc with our compaction unit and therefore cannot be collected.
  • Putting loose plastic bags and non-recyclable paper inside another before placing in bins help stop them from "flying away" as the bin is emptied.
  • You may be requested to place your mobile garbage bin on the opposite side of the road to the property to make the collection schedule more efficient.

A bulky waste collection will be held in Jerilderie town on Monday 15 June 2020.

Please put your waste on your front kerbside or median strip before 8.00 am. 

We can collect: furniture and appliances, mattresses, baby or child car seats, bookshelves, large plastic toys, swing sets, gym equipment, basketball goals, scrap metal and garden cuttings (tree cuttings should be no more than 1.5 metres in length and securely tied in a bundle).

We can’t collect: tyres, chemicals, asbestos, pesticides, paints and gas bottles because they are banned from the waste depot.

Please only place your rubbish out the front from 6 June 2020.

Any waste left after 8.00 am may not be collected and you may be charged for its removal.
