Hard Waste Collection 2020
Berri Barmera Council's hard waste collection for 2020 is fast approaching with a confirmed commencement date of 2 November and an expected completion date of 4 December 2020.
It is expected that kerbside collection of hard waste will be undertaken within a 6 week period - for more details see below and also the attached flyer
A kerbside collection service will be provided for township residents for the removal of large items that cannot be disposed of through regular household waste collections. For a residential property to be eligible they must be located within township boundaries, which is defined as having a street address, not a rural address. Excluded properties include, but are not limited to, businesses, commercial premises, vacant land, industrial properties, schools and churches.
Preparing for your collection
Hard waste items must be sorted and placed in sorted piles on the nature strip in front of your property on the Sunday before your collection week.
Your total collection should not be more than two cubic metres. Items must be no longer than 2 metres and must be able to be lifted by two people. Hard waste exceeding these limits will not be collected.
All collections will be from an accessible kerbside position located outside the premises, close to the kerb line and clear of the road and footpath. Please avoid parking in front of collection piles.
Rural residents will be eligible for a single use voucher to the value of $50 for use at the Cleanaway Waste Transfer Station in Monash.
Vouchers will be available from the Berri Council office located at 19 Wilson Street. To obtain a voucher, a copy of a Council rates notice or a driver's licence is required to be shown as proof of residency within the Council area.
Council residents can also provide identification at the Barmera Public Library located at 4 Barwell Avenue, Barmera and a voucher will be mailed out.
To be eligible for a voucher the property must be a residential property with an allocated rural address.
Please note, only one voucher per eligible property can be claimed and any charges above this amount will be at the cost of the resident.
