It’s time to clean out the spare room or under the house as council’s free large item kerbside collection begins on 7 February 2022 for one week in Brassall.
Growth, Waste and Infrastructure Committee chairperson Mayor Teresa Harding said the service is helping Ipswich residents to dispose of unwanted items around their home.
“Council’s collection teams will be moving through each Ipswich suburb passing about 86,603 households,” Mayor Harding said.
“From Monday 7 February teams will be collecting across Brassall, and disposing of your unwanted items that are not suitable for household general waste or your recycling bin.
“This will be the fourth week of the free kerbside collection and we have seen a great response in the suburbs covered so far.”
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.
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.
