Recently as of February 2018, residents in the Cumberland Council area are entitled to 4 free kerbside junk collections each year. The service must be pre-booked to the Cumberland Council online or over the phone. The free household junk pick up service can be busy at times, therefore, it is recommended that you pre-book the rubbish service up to 4 weeks in advance.
If you plan to throw away large household goods that are relatively in good condition, you can donate or offer your unwanted items to The Bower. They will pick up your household junk for free and provide them to those in need. This is an attractive option because no junk is wasted and it does not end up in landfills.
