Bulk Waste Collection

Singleton Council provides an annual Bulk Waste Collection service to urban and rural residential properties.

The Bulk Waste Collection service offers residents who receive a domestic waste and recycling service a one-off opportunity each year to dispose of bulkier waste items, simply by placing them on the kerbside for collection free of charge.

Residents can place waste on the kerbside the week before their collection. Items placed out earlier will be considered illegal dumping and may attract a fine.
