If your Bulk Verge Collection items were not collected on its scheduled week, there could be a number of reasons why.
Why was some material removed and not others?
Piles are collected separately to maximise recycling. All waste won't be collected on the same day but should generally be all gone within the week. Do not continue to add to piles already collected.
Was the pile placed on your verge too big, or where the Shire could access it?
The maximum amount of Bulk Waste you can place on your verge for both types of bulk collections is two cubic metres in size. Please also make sure the Shire can access your Bulk Waste pile. Below are some useful guidelines.
Do not allow items to obstruct the footpath or spill out onto the road.
Do not place items under trees, against power poles or their supportive wires.
Do not have a pile that is more than two cubic metres.
Do not leave items not intended for bulk collection on the verge.
Do not place items near fences or on sprinklers.
Did you put your bulk waste out too late?
Your Bulk Verge Collection must not be placed on the verge for collection until two weeks prior to the collection date; after this date no further Bulk Waste should be presented for collection. Any Bulk Waste presented after your Monday commencement date may be missed.
A notice should have been placed in your letterbox explaining why the Bulk Waste you presented was not collected, there will be instructions on what you can do next and details of who you can contact at the Shire for instructions. Just a reminder that outside of Bulk Verge Collection times, waste left on the verge may be considered littering.
