Kerbside Clean Up

When is my Kerbside Clean Up date?


Each property with 5 or fewer dwellings in the Georges River area are offered two free Kerbside Clean Up collections each year. Unit Complexes consisting of 6 or more dwellings must contact their strata or body corporate to organise a Kerbside Clean Up with Council. Follow the instructions below according to where you live. 


I live in Peakhurst, Mortdale or Hurstville Ward.


Residents living in Peakhurst, Mortdale and Hurstville Wards are required to book a Kerbside Clean Up for their property (two per property each calendar year).
To organise a Kerbside Clean Up for your property, follow these steps:

  1. Call the Waste Hotline on 1800 079 390 to pre-book your clean up. Please note: in some circumstances you may be required to wait up to four weeks for the scheduled collection date.

  2. Place the items on the kerbside the night before your collection as the collection may occur early in the morning of the scheduled collection date. Your collection service is for your property only, therefore it is unlawful to place items outside another persons property.

​Houses, villas or town houses with 5 or fewer dwellings are entitled to two Kerbside Clean Up collections per property per calendar year.

Unit complexes consisting of 6 or more dwellings must contact their strata or body corporate to organise a Kerbside Clean Up with Council. Unit complexes are entitled to have two Kerbside Clean Up collections per calendar year, per block.

I live in Blakehurst or Kogarah Bay Ward.


Residents living in Blakehurst and Kogarah Bay Wards can access a pre-scheduled Kerbside Clean Up for their property (two per property each calendar year).

To view the date of the pre-scheduled Kerbside Clean Up for your property, follow these steps:

  1. Kerbside Clean Up dates for residents of Blakehurst and Kogarah Bay wards are available by viewing the Your Waste and Recycling page.

  2. Click on the Address Search and insert your address. Your Kerbside Clean Up date will be shown. Collection of items may occur any day during the week of the scheduled collection.

What can I place in my Kerbside Clean Up?


What do I do next?

  1. Place the material to be collected in front of your property only when you have a collection scheduled. Please note: placing materials in front of your property when a collection is not scheduled can attract a fine of up to $2,000 for illegal dumping.

  2.  Make sure items do not exceed an area of 3 metres long and 1 metre wide. If you have mattresses for collection, please place them in a separate pile.

  3. View the Kerbside Clean Up brochure.

Please note: Council does not approve of scavengers going through the waste placed out for collection. 

What else can I do with bulky waste?

Before using the clean up service, consider rehoming or repairing your unwanted items. If the items are still in good condition, The Bower may be able to collect them for resale, or direct you to an organisation who may recycle the items.

You can also attend Council's Repair Cafe Workshops.

By attending these workshops you will learn new skills and understand the benefits of recycling bicycles, small electrical items and timber furniture. Visit Council's What's On page regularly to find upcoming event dates.


Illegal dumping


We monitor and investigate all instances of illegal dumping within our local area. If you witness illegal dumping or find dumped materials, please submit an online form to Regional Illegal Dumping Squad (RID). Alternatively, you can contact RID on 131 555.

Illegal dumping can:  

  • Cause health hazards

  • Cost Council and ratepayers money

  • Degrade the environment

  • Lower property values if areas become less attractive to prospective landowners.

It is an offence to illegally dump goods under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997. Significant fines apply to people caught dumping.

Asbestos removal 


Asbestos is a dangerous material which was commonly used until being banned throughout Australia in 2003. Due to the danger it can pose, there are strict safety protocols for the removal and disposal of asbestos.

To minimise the risk of asbestos exposure to yourself or your family, WorkCover recommends that householders engage a licensed asbestos removal contractor. Asbestos waste must be disposed of at a landfill facility that accepts it and may require 24 hours of notice before being dropped off.

Further information is outlined with Council's Asbestos Management Policies.

Please report any issues with Kerbside Clean Up Collection and Illegal Dumping through the Log It / Fix It tool available to all residents.
