Kerbside Clean Up Collection Service

Due to overwhelming demand, Councils pre-booked Clean-up is now fully booked for collection dates until after the New Year.

Residents can still contact SUEZ to arrange a collection, however the earliest collection dates possible are in early 2019.

Please note: If you have only had one collection in the 2018 calendar year, any collection you arrange in 2018 will count towards your 2018 allocation and not impact your allocated 2019 collections.

We recently surveyed our community to gather your feedback on the harmonisation of our kerbside clean up collection service. These results were presented to Council, which then determined that the kerbside clean up services previously offered by the Former Kogarah and Hurstville City Councils will remain.

This decision was made after undertaking a cost benefit analysis, which indicated that the community would benefit more if the existing services continue until the next waste collection service is developed in 2023.
