    We received over 2,000 responses to our online and telephone survey over the winter. We have been busy since then analysing the data and developing a service review. We would like to thank everyone that took the time to provide their input to the project.

    The service review has been completed and the recommendation for the future service will be presented Council in the coming months.

      • Background

        6 months ago

        Council provides a bulky goods collection service in order to allow residents to conveniently dispose of large household items (no smaller than a microwave) that meet Council’s acceptance criteria.

        The service allows for two collections per year per household of up to 3 cubic metres of bulky goods.

        All collected materials that meet Council’s acceptance criteria are taken to Kimbriki Resource Recovery facility where they are sorted to remove metals and other recyclable materials before being placed in landfill.

        Currently Northern Beaches Council collects bulky goods via three different methods across the local government area.

        • Former Pittwater residents receive two bookable (on call service) pick-ups per year, per household. Their bulky goods are collected on the same day as their regular waste collection.
        • Former Manly residents receive two bookable (on call service) pick-ups per year, per household. Bulky goods are collected on Wednesdays.
        • Residents from former Warringah have two scheduled picks ups per household. Council selects dates and provides 3 weeks notice of collection, which happens on a Monday.

        Each service is collected on a different day of the week - and impacts residents differently.

        The Bulky Goods service review will look at all three systems and develop a future service model that provides equal service level for all residents across the Northern Beaches area.

        It is important to note that this project only affects "Bulky Goods Collection" - it does not affect your general waste collection (red/ yellow / blue /green bins).
