Hard waste collection service review

Feedback has concluded.

We've been listening to our community and know that many residents would like a more flexible approach to hard waste collections in Kingston. That's why we're thinking of upgrading our hard waste collection service to two free collections per financial year, at whatever time is most convenient for you!

The hard waste service upgrade would replace the annual city-wide collection in September/October - however if this is your preferred time of year for a collection, you would be welcome to book your hard waste collection during these months. There would be no changes to the hard waste disposal guidelines, it would be the same service, with more booking flexibility.

Our aim is to modernise our hard waste collection service to suit the community's needs, while also offering a service that lowers the instances of illegally dumped rubbish in Kingston. This in turn would lower the amount of waste sent to landfill while increasing recycling.
