Engagement Snapshot

Here is an overview of all the activities involving community for the purpose of participation.


Our annual kerbside bulky rubbish clean up is set to commence in October 2023. Those residents familiar with our annual kerbside collection will notice zones now have names aligned to locations and adopted colours and contrast for improved accessibility.

The Annual DRC Bulky Waste Collection allows materials to be separated upon presentation, which intern provides a positive re-use or recycling opportunity for materials that may otherwise end up in a landfill. In addition, the service allows residents to display items during Bulky that can’t be placed in domestic bins due to size and/or weight.

For residents who are unsure of their collection zone or would like to make sure they are placing their rubbish out on the correct day, we have an interactive map that allows you to enter your address and the map will present your collection zone and details for your collection.

This year's collection will see the implementation of a Bulky Rubbish Notification Slip. Residents who receive this slip will be notified if:

  • rubbish has been placed out before the 7-day collection date
  • bulky items are on the prohibited list
  • bulky items are too large or heavy
  • bulky items are from a commercial property

Residents have 2 business days from the dated notice to discuss recollection options with council. Under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997, Section 143 Council may issue Penalty infringements of up to $2000 to an individual who does not remove all excess rubbish requested from the front of their property after this time period.
