The hard waste collection helps residents dispose of larger household items that cannot be disposed of through the regular kerbside collection service.
This service has been created to replace Gregadoo Waste Management Centers free tip days, to give everyone access to using this service that may not be able to travel to Gregadoo Waste Management Center.
Properties that pay the domestic waste management service charge can access one free hard waste collection per calendar year to dispose of up to two cubic metres of hard waste. This includes rental properties within the waste management service area.

Avoid, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Landfill
Council aims to reduce waste to landfill and encourages the community to follow the waste hierarchy, where disposal to landfill is the last option.
Before you dispose of your unwanted items through the kerbside hard waste collection, take some time to consider whether they can be reused or recycled:
- Household items, furniture, books, toys, clothes etc that are still in good order can be donated to a charity or dropped to the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre Tip Shop for free (open Fri, Sat & Sun).
- Items such as polystyrene, timber/fencing materials, scrap metal, cardboard, oversized/surplus green waste etc can be recycled or reused if they are dropped out to the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre Transfer Station.
- Printer cartridges, household batteries and mobile phones are recyclable for free at numerous retail locations and at the Community Recycling Station.
Although landfilling should be the last resort, the above items can still be picked up through the Hard Waste Collection service as long as it meets the two cubic metre size limit.
