Cumberland Council Kerbside Collection

Recently as of February 2018, residents in the Cumberland Council area are entitled to 4 free kerbside junk collection each year. The service must be pre-booked online or over the phone to the Cumberland Council. 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 are planning to throw away large household goods that are relatively in good condition, you can opt to 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 being wasted and it does not end up in a landfill.

How to prepare for Cumberland Council Kerbside Pick Up

Follow these simple steps to prepare for your kerbside rubbish collection by the Cumberland Council. By doing so, you are keeping your neighbours and workers safe from rubbish hazards.

2) Place them on the kerbside in front of your property one day before the booked date
3) Put small and broken goods in a box or bag for disposal

5) Make sure that the pile is neat and is not blocking any walkway or path

    You guys are great, I’ll happily recommend you. I just wished I had found you sooner. I felt your price was a little too low when you quoted… so I didn’t think you would do such a good job… well done for proving me wrong.
