Residents Set to Tidy Up with Council’s Bulky Waste Collection
For many that have been busy “Tidying up with Marie Kondo” and now need to rid themselves of unused household goods that cannot fit into the wheelie bins, Council’s March bulky waste collection comes at the perfect time.
The bulky waste kerbside collection service helps Moree Plains' households dispose of unwanted materials such as mattresses, e-waste, white goods and broken furniture, as well as oversized garden prunings, scrap metal and wood.
Households in Moree and the surrounding area including Gurley, Gwydirville and Bendygleet, must register with the Waste Hotline by Friday 1 March 2019 for the collection that begins Monday 4 March 2019.
Households in villages and surrounding areas including Ashley, Biniguy, Boggabilla, Boomi, Garah, Mungindi, Pallamallawa, Vitonga Road, Weemelah and Yarraman must register by Friday 8 March 2019 for pick-ups beginning Monday 11 March 2019.
Moree Plains Shire Council offers two free scheduled Bulky Waste Collections each year - one in March and one in August to households that receive a weekly kerbside wheelie bin collection service. Those residents not receiving this service can take household waste to the Moree Waste Management Facility and dispose of sorted domestic waste for free.
All households with a kerbside wheelie bin collection service should have received an information flyer in their mailbox with specific details about the bulky waste collection, alternatively, information can be found on Council’s website and Facebook page.
To prevent wind-blown rubbish from spoiling the environment and public safety, please don’t start piling items on the kerb until the weekend before the collection.
The items you put on the kerb are recycled where possible but mostly they will end up going directly to landfill, hence where possible Council encourages residents to consider re-homing items by selling, donating or giving them away.
On the weekend before the collection starts, separate and stack items into piles on the kerb.
1. Large items
2. General Household Waste
3. Green waste
4. Metals, white goods (remove doors) and E-waste
