Watch out for next bulk verge collection!
The Town of Cambridge carries out two bulk verge collections each year, giving residents the chance to get rid of large household items easily.
Residents are informed approximately two weeks before their scheduled collection date by a leaflet distributed to each household, advising important information about what materials will be collected and how to stack the unwanted goods on the verge.

What if I need to get rid of the unwanted items quickly?
If you need to get rid of unwanted household items quickly why not consider donating furniture, appliances, tools or clothes to charity. A number of charity organisations including Anglicare, St Vincent De Paul, the Salvation Army and Good Sammys are willing to accept used household items, and may be available to pick up some types of goods.
Otherwise, unwanted household items can be disposed of at nearby Waste Centres - Brockway Transfer Station, Tamala Park Recycling Centre and Balcatta Recycling Centre.
