- Place waste on the verge one metre back from the kerb, taking care not to obstruct footpaths, bus shelters, line of sight or create a safety hazard.
- Place items at least one metre clear of vehicles, trees, water meters, fences, letterboxes, reticulation and sprinklers to allow collection without causing damage.

- Excess waste will not be collected.
- Do not put bulk waste out prior to your nominated weekend as you may receive an infringement under the City's Waste Local Law.
- Do not follow your neighbour. Please check your collection dates. Crews will not return if you miss your collection.
