Cardboard Collection

Businesses in the CBD and outer commercial areas may access Council's Cardboard Collection Service by Registering a Collection Point(PDF, 97KB) .  Once registered, a business may place maximum of 2m3 of neatly stacked cardboard out for collection, in a location that can be safely and easily accessed. 

CBD - Cardboard is collected weekly on Tuesday evenings from 5-7pm.  Cardboard should not be placed out until the afternoon on a Tuesday. 

Operators that are placing cardboard out for collection have a responsibility of maintaining their collection point until the collection has taken place. This will included adverse weather conditions i.e. strong windy days.

Failing to follow conditions of your collection may result in this service being removed.

Outer commercial areas - If your business is in a residential street that receives the fortnightly kerbside service and you would like to be included please indicate your interest by completing the Waste or Recycling Collection Form(PDF, 97KB).
