Bulky and Green Waste Clean-up - Bookings Required

No booking, no pick up!

Moree Plains residents love the kerbside bulk waste collection service, which occurs in March and August each year.

This service helps Moree Plains households dispose of unwanted materials such as mattresses, e-waste; white goods and broken furniture, as well as oversized garden pruning’s, scrap metal and wood.
The collection truck does not driving up and down the streets looking for waste piles, you must contact the Waste Hotline 1300 736 719 to register your kerbside collection before you put items out on the kerb.
Each household is only permitted to have three cubic metres of waste per bulky waste collection.

No more items should be put out or added to the pile during the week of the collection. Any material left out on the kerb, will be treated as illegal dumping and you may be issued with an infringement notice.

An information flyer will arrive in your mailbox with specific details about the bulky waste collection.

Collection areas

The collections will begin with households in Moree and the surrounding areas of Gurley, Gwydirville and Bendygleet.

Then the following week are the village collections at Ashley, Biniguy, Boggabilla, Boomi, Garah, Mungindi, Pallamallawa, Vitonga Road, Weemelah and Yarraman.

Safety first

Consider the hazard your kerbside waste could create from accidental poisoning or drowning, injuries and contamination.

  • box, tie or contain all loose items (to stop wind-blown litter)
  • wrap sharp edges (prevent cuts)
  • take doors off whitegoods (due to possible entrapment)
  • remove or cut cords off faulty equipment (choking and electrocution)
  • hazardous waste or toxic material should be personally taken to the landfill (due to contamination)
  • dispose of fluids appropriately (fluids can contaminate the environment or poison children/pets)
  • place lids on containers and items that collect more than 30mm of water (prevent drowning)

Stacking items on the kerb - Items to be no heavier than two people can carry

To prevent wind-blown rubbish and untidy streets, please don’t start piling items on the kerb until the week before the collection; then separate and stack items into piles on the kerb – this makes it easier to distinguish between rubbish and recycling
