Bulky Waste Disposal Weekend
Published on 19 October 2020
Goulburn Mulwaree Council is encouraging residents to begin to prepare for the free Bulky Household General Waste disposal weekend, which has been confirmed for Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th November.
Waste Management Centres in Goulburn, Marulan and Tarago will be open from 7am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday to cater for the expected larger crowds.
Mayor Bob Kirk encouraged residents to plan ahead to take advantage of the November weekend.
“The household general waste weekend is usually even busier than our free recyclable weekend, so I encourage you to get prepared now and to plan your trip ahead of time as there may be some delays.
“We do expect some line-ups throughout the day as it’s always a popular weekend, but will have plenty of staff on hand to keep things moving smoothly. The main rush is usually early on Saturday morning, so if you don’t want to wait around in line we recommend holding off until later in the day, or even Sunday.”
Goulburn Mulwaree residents can dispose of up to 2m3 of bulky household general waste (such as household furniture, green waste, cardboard and steel) per property, free of charge at Council's waste centres.
All loads must be transported to one of Council's waste centres, and only domestic items will be accepted. Council asks that you please sort the load so that recyclables can be placed in the appropriate areas at the waste centre, or charges will apply.
Due to the impacts of COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, Council staff will not be able to assist customers in unloading their items as has occurred in previous years. Residents must ensure they are able to unload vehicles themselves, for example by ensuring more than one person attends for unloading.
