Northern Beaches Council

Northern Beaches Council Kerbside Collection

The Northern Beaches Council is made up of three former councils that used to govern smaller areas. They were united on the 12th of May 2016 to form the Northern Beaches Council which now governs those areas.

The free bulky household goods collection provided by the Northern Beaches Council is depended on your previous city council. These are:

Warringah Council area – 2 free collections notified by letter in the mailbox
Pittwater Council area – 2 free pre-booked collections either by online or calling
Manly Council area – 2 free pre-booked collections either by online or calling
Scotland Island and Western Foreshore area – 2 free collections dates found on waste calendar

With the assistance of the council’s free bulky waste collection, the Northern Beaches Council hopes to reduce the number of illegally dumped rubbish and preserve the natural environment. If you are unsure which rubbish goes into your household garbage bin, there are guides which can help you properly dispose of your rubbish.

How to get rid of unaccepted household waste?

There is a variety of organisations and communities that will accept your unwanted waste. Some of the ways you can get rid of your household junk is by giving it to a friend or charity. Charities such as The Salvation Army and The Bower offer free pick up services on relatively good condition furniture and items.

There is a recycling centre available for residents in the Northern Beach Council area that may cost a fee to drop off your unwanted goods. Taking your recyclable waste to a recycling centre is a good option as it is redirected from the landfill and can be used again. You can drop off your electronic waste at your nearest e-waste recycling centre. They will accept small and large electronic rubbish such as computers, keyboards, mobiles etc.

    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.
