Kerbside clean up set to start

Environment Noosa Council


Noosa’s shire-wide kerbside collection is about to start, with the first pick-ups beginning Monday July 15.

Collection crews will visit Peregian, Marcus and Castaways Beaches during the week, commencing July 15, 2019.

Residents are advised that the service is only available to residential properties and unit complexes.

Waste Services Manager Wayne Schafer said the kerbside collection would run for eight weeks across different parts of the shire.

“An information flyer will be delivered in advance of the collection service to every eligible residence and the collection weeks and what can be presented for service are listed on the council website,”

“The collection will be completed Monday to Friday, so its important items are placed on the kerbside on the Sunday, prior to the Monday of the collection week,” he said.

This year, three different trucks will collect the waste and residents are asked to separate the items into three different piles on the kerbside.

·         Useful items easily repaired for reuse by the recycle shop or a charity group

·         Metal items for recycling

·         All other rubbish

The collection for the different items will happen at different times.

Garden waste will not be accepted, including prunings or cuttings.

Mr Schafer stressed that no demolition or commercial building waste would be collected.

“Residents can find a list of what will be collected on Council’s website and we encourage residents to adhere to the limits,” he said.

“It’s really ideal to recycle old or unwanted goods or to get rid of those bulky items such as white goods, furniture and other household rubbish.

A maximum of three cubic metres per property or 6 cubic metres total per unit complex will be collected.

The pickup dates are available at
