Bulk verge collections

Bulk Verge Collection

The Town conducts two residential property bulk verge collections each year (generally in Spring and Autumn).  Bulk verge collections are not applicable to commercial properties.

Two weeks before collection date a brochure will be left in your letterbox listing what will and will not be collected, and how to stack the items for collection on the verge.

As the collection is conducted by a small loader, all items should be placed away from reticulation and gardens.

Only items for collection should be placed on or near the verge (including crossovers).
