Home based collection

AlburyCity does not conduct a kerbside hard waste collection service, rather it issues residents with four vouchers for entry to the Albury Waste Management Centre each year.

However for residents facing hardship, a home-based collection service is available, subject to eligibility.

Collection conditions

  • You are entitled to one visit annually - two vouchers are to be surrendered to council when they collect the waste.
  • You must be home at the time of the pick-up and must supervise the collection (full day).
  • Waste must not be stored on the nature strip. It must be kept within your own yard.
  • No council employee can enter your home or shed.
  • Officers can collect one trailer equivalent of green waste and/or one trailer equivalent of general waste per collection.

Hard waste items typically include

  • Small household furniture
  • Small household appliances
  • Electrical appliances, tools, equipment, mowers and small car parts
  • Kitchenware, pottery and crockery
  • Carpet, rolled and tied please (max 1.5m long)

Green waste

Green waste items must be able to be lifted by ONE person. A standard 6 x 4 trailer load is the total amount of material allowed for green waste collection, penalties may apply if waste exceeds this amount. Green waste items typically include:

  • Branches and prunings less than 1.8 metres in length (no longer than a 6 x 4 trailer).
  • Small tree roots - however, they must be able to be lifted by one person.

What type of items won't be collected

  • Over-length and overweight items of any nature
  • Waste that exceeds the total volume allowed (a standard 6 x 4 trailer load)
  • Items that can't be lifted by two people (except for green waste, which must be able to be lifted by one person)
  • Waste from industrial and commercial premises and business operated from home
  • Waste material from construction and demolition of buildings
  • Bricks, concrete, stone, clay, sand and soil
  • Liquids, whether or not in sealed containers including: paint, oil, garden sprays and chemicals
  • Hazardous waste, including asbestos
  • Tyres, batteries or gas bottles of any type
  • Timber greater than 1.8 metres in length (anything over the standard 6 x 4 trailer length)
  • Steel or metal (including large whitegoods). It is the responsibility of the resident to recycle steel or metal with local recyclers or dispose of at the Albury Waste Management Centre.
