How to book an inorganic collection

You should know

Inorganic collections take place between 7am and 4pm.
Inorganic items are collected by two trucks. One truck will pick up recyclable material, and the second truck will pick up items for landfill. If only some of your items have been collected, the second truck might still be on its way.


​Find the inorganic collection schedule for your area


Inorganic collection bookings

  2. Click on the Collection dates and bookings button.
  3. Read and accept the collection guidelines.

The inorganic collection week dates will show as long as bookings are still open for your area.
