Ipswich residents can now access a cleaner, greener large item kerbside collection program, with bookings for the new free, annual bagged service now open.
The free kerbside collection service will now be available every year, instead of every second year.
The on-demand service offers every eligible Ipswich household one free collection each year, and is specifically designed to increase the amount of reclaimed materials by more than 50 per cent.
This new scheme is safer, cleaner, and shifts our focus from waste disposal to resource recovery – a key priority for Ipswich City Council.
Residents can simply go online or call directly to book a large two cubic metre bag on the date of their choice.
Contractor Handel Group will deliver the bag straight to the property and then collect it once notified by the householder, within a specified timeframe.
The on-demand service sees another key pillar of council’s comprehensive Resource Recovery Strategy 2021 accomplished.
These new bags are available for residents to book at Ipswich.qld.gov.au/kerbside or by calling the customer service centre on (07) 3130 0412.
The amount and types of waste currently accepted will remain the same with the new collection service.
