Inorganic collections for units and apartments

We now offer a yearly inorganic collection for multi-unit developments like gated communities, retirement villages and apartments. A multi-unit development is 10 or more properties on one site.

​How to use the inorganic collection service

If most households in your building or development want an inorganic collection, the building manager or body corporate can make a bulk booking. There is no extra charge for this, as it is paid for by property rates.


Our tip

Before you make a booking just for your unit, talk to your building manager or body corporate. They will tell you if there is a bulk booking.

If there is not a bulk booking, they will tell you where to leave your items to be collected.

Getting your inorganic collection right

You can put out one small trailer load of items per unit or apartment.

If you have a shared driveway, make sure to leave your items where our collectors can access them. Don't leave them on the kerbside.

Items should be out by 7am on your collection day.
