Spring is the perfect time to clear out the back shed, spare room or rubbish pile and with Dubbo Regional Council’s (DRC) FREE annual kerbside bulky rubbish collection coming up there is no better time to ‘kerb the clutter.’

Council’s annual kerbside bulky rubbish collection will run in Wellington from 17 to 21 October and run in Dubbo from 24 October to 25 November 2022.

DRC’s Manager of Resource Recovery and Efficiency, John Wisniewski said it’s always a very popular Council initiative. “ We understand that a lot of our residents cannot get to our waste transfer stations, this is a great opportunity for residents to put out up to one small box trailer of bulky goods for it to be collected for free,” said Mr Wisniewski.

Residents are encouraged to place bulky rubbish on the footpath, making sure it does not obstruct people from using the pathway.

“Sorting your bulky rubbish into separate piles on the kerb allows Council to maximise the amount of material that can be recycled whilst minimising the items that will be landfilled. Separate your bulky waste into separate piles for Scrap Metal, E-Waste and Garden Waste and place the remaining residual material into a garbage pile. Council sends separate trucks to pick up the four waste streams, in addition to a fifth truck picking up mattresses.

“We do ask that residents please be patient with the collection and keep checking on the dates when pickups will occur in your neighbourhood, as these may change as the collection progresses depending upon the amount of waste that residents place out on the kerb,” said Mr Wisniewski.

Residents can determine the approximate period of their collection via an interactive map, find your zone at www.dubbo.nsw.gov.au/bulkyrubbish
