Chief Minister Stanhope has announced that there will be a free “bulky waste collection service” for those fortunate enough to hold a Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card, ACTION Gold Concession Card or Department of Veterans Affairs Gold Card.
A fee based system will operate for the rest:
Certain, eligible households will be entitled to one free collection during the trial period. Other households will incur a fee based on the condition and ability to reuse the waste items.
Items that will be accepted during the trial are household furniture and appliances, mattresses, garden tools and equipment, timber, white goods/sinks/baths, building materials and metal products/scrap metal. A number of exclusions apply.
