Hard Waste Collections

Book a hard waste collection

Kingston residents can book a hard waste collection for $60 per booking (in addition to the free annual collection).

The maximum size of the collection is 2 cubic metres (2m x 1m x 1m) per booking.

Hard waste must be stacked on your nature strip or within 1m inside the fence line by 6am on your collection date. Please put items out as close to your collection date as possible.

  • Bookings made from Monday to Friday will be collected the following week.
  • Bookings made on a Saturday or Sunday will be collected the next Thursday or Friday. 

Residents are reminded to donate useful items to their local op shop or charity store or giveaway items through sites such as Facebook marketplace or Gumtree prior to booking a hard waste collection.

Your rubbish is your responsibility

Any residents placing items on the nature strip without prior Council approval may be treated as having littered and an infringement notice could be issued. Hard waste for the annual collection may only be placed on the nature strip for collection and not within private property, in parklands or on vacant blocks.

Any items placed on the nature strip that are not permitted will be the responsibility of the resident to remove. Fines of up to $322 may be issued for not removing this waste.
