Bulky household junk can be challenging to eliminate, especially when it is heavy and does not fit into our wheelie bins for weekly collection. The Hunter’s Hill Council has dedicated two free annual kerbside collection for each household. This aims to help residents easily dispose of their unwanted large rubbish and discourage illegal dumping.
Illegal dumping is a severe crime and should be taken seriously with heavy punishment and penalties. Illegal dumping has considerable consequences on the environment that you should be aware of. Not only does it affect the environment, but it also harms wildlife and hinders the growth of a natural ecosystem.
The Hunter’s Hill Council has encouraged residents to compost their food waste and biodegradable products for their own gardens. This effectively helps reduce the issue of sending food waste to landfills. Unlike other councils, the Hunter’s Hill Council, unfortunately, does not dedicate any free kerbside pick up for garden waste and encourages dwellings to place them in the green lid bin if possible.
