Get Rid of Bulky Items On This Year’s Wavell Heights Kerbside Collection Day

Kerbside Collection for Wavell Heights is almost here. Happening on Monday, the 7th of August, this is the perfect time for you to get rid of your clutter and those bulky items that need to go.

Before you do, there are some things that you should keep in mind.


There’s a Limit

Getting rid of your bulky items for Kerbside Collection day seems to be the best idea. However, you should know that the Brisbane City Council has a limit for this. The Council will only collect items less than two cubic meters. Items above that will not be accepted anymore. Take it easy on the items. If it’s not going to work for Kerbside, try to donate it instead or drop it off at a Recovery Centre.


Keep It Organized

Since you’re throwing away bulk items, make sure that everything is still organised. This is why it is best to start early – a week or even weeks before your Kerbside Collection date is the best time to pack up things especially you have so much stuff to let go of. Pack them all neatly in boxes and keep them organized.

You may be putting items you no longer need by the kerb, but that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to make a mess outside. Keep your items, boxes and other pieces of furniture organised outside. Remember that your items need to be out on the kerb this weekend!


There Is a List of Non-Acceptable & Acceptable Items

Check out this link to see what items are acceptable and what aren’t. Unacceptable items will be left by the kerb by the council and if the item/s remains by the kerb within seven days after the collection date, the council will fine you.

Some of your bulky items may not be accepted by the council due to its size. In case this happens, the best place to go is to check out Recovery Centres in the following areas:
