When free kerbside collection is coming to your suburb

Have you been hoarding a few unwanted items around home just waiting for the next kerbside collection service to get rid of them?

Well, the wait is almost over because the next free Ipswich City Council kerbside collection pick up is just around the corner.

It will be rolled out suburb by suburb between 7 October to 13 December.

Here are a few dos and don’ts to follow when it comes to kerbside collection.

Do put your items out at the right time

It is important for community safety and suburban amenity that items are not put out too early. The time to place your items on the footpath for collection is the weekend prior to the start of the service in your suburb.

You will receive a flyer in your letterbox two weeks prior to the start of the service in your suburb so you have time to start gathering unwanted things. The pick up schedule is below, and also available here.

Do put these items on the footpath

Items eligible to be placed on the footpath include furniture, white goods, household appliances, carpet and lino, wood products (excluding commercial builders waste), bicycles, baths and laundry tubs.

A full list of items can be found on the flyer provided to households, or download the flyer for your suburb here.

Don’t put these items on the footpath

Items not eligible include hazardous waste (chemicals and oils), gas bottles, glass and mirrors, household waste (food scraps, etc), green waste, dirt and stones, bricks and concrete, commercial building waste and any other household waste that would normally go into your refuse or recycling bin.

A full list of items can be found on the flyer provided to households or download the flyer for your suburb here.

Don’t overload your pile

You can only place items on the footpath that are equal to two cubic metres, which is the size of a small box trailer. Volumes in excess of this size may not be collected.

Don’t be late

Collection trucks will only be attending streets in each suburb once and cannot return to streets extra times as this will impact on the collection schedule for other properties across Ipswich.

Does your pile meet these requirements?

  • Items no 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 in the pile
  • The pile is neat and tidy on the footpath and roadway is kept clear
  • Doors are removed from cupboards
  • Any outdoor play equipment is dismantled
