The Woollahra Municipal Council has scheduled 3 free bulky junk pickups each year for residents in the local council area. Each area is given different dates each year for their household waste that are too big to fit inside their general waste wheelie bin. These dates land on a Monday each week. If Monday is a public holiday then collection would occur on the following day on Tuesday.
You will need to check with the Woollahra Municipal Council website for the exact dates that they will collect in your suburb. Because the junk is collected on Monday, you will need to put your unwanted household rubbish on the kerbside on Sunday night. You may receive a penalty for illegal dumping on the nature strip earlier.
It is always a better option to reuse and recycle your unwanted household goods instead of throwing them away to end up in a landfill. These include having a garage sale, donating to charity or taking it to a recycling facility. There are many benefits of this to the community as well as the environment.
