Free kerbside collection commencing in Bellbird Park and Spring Mountain

It is time to clean out the spare room or under the house as council’s free large item kerbside collection begins on 9 May for one week in Bellbird Park and Spring Mountain.

Growth, Infrastructure and Waste Committee Chairperson Ipswich Mayor Teresa Harding said the scheduled service was back in full swing across the city.

“Bellbird Park and Spring Mountain residents can take this opportunity to collect anything that can be disposed of from around your home, such as broken furniture, toys and other unwanted appliances,” Mayor Harding said.

Growth, Infrastructure and Waste Committee Deputy Chairperson Division 2 Councillor Paul Tully said collection teams would be passing by 3,261 homes in Bellbird Park and 2,438 homes in Spring Mountain from Monday 9 May.

“The kerbside collection service means bulky items that cannot be reused or recycled can be picked up free of charge,” Cr Tully said.

Division 2 Councillor Nicole Jonic said the collection service was great for disposing of items not suitable for the general waste or recycling bins.

“Residents should place items on the kerb by the weekend before their scheduled collection commencement date, but not more than seven days prior,” Cr Jonic said.

Kerbside collection was paused and resources reallocated to support flood impacted areas.

Kerbside collection guidelines are:

  • Items do not exceed two cubic metres in volume (one small box trailer)
  • Items can be easily and safely lifted by two people
  • No sharp or dangerous objects are placed on kerbside
  • Piles are tidy on the kerbside and roadway is kept clear
  • Doors are removed from cupboards
  • Outdoor play equipment is to be dismantled

Read the guidelines on what is an acceptable item to put on the footpath as only acceptable items will be collected.

Acceptable items include furniture, mattresses, household appliances, carpet, lino, bath and laundry tubs, bicycles and outdoor play equipment.

Appliances containing refrigerants such as fridges, freezers and air conditioners cannot be accepted.

Residents should place items on the kerb by the weekend before their scheduled collection commencement date, but not more than seven days prior.

The full schedule of when the kerbside collection service will be available in each suburb is now available on council’s website.
