Kerbside Collection Coming to Morningside, Murrarrie & Cannon Hill

Heads up, Morningside, Murrarrie and Cannon Hill residents! Kerbside collection will be back on Monday, 14 Feb 2022. Make sure that you have your items sorted out and ready for collection before 6:00 a.m.

Council has resumed the kerbside collection service since mid-2021 and Morningside, Murrarrie and Cannon Hill will finally get their turn after more than a year of pause due to the pandemic.

As with the previous collections, Council has a list of acceptable and unacceptable items for kerbside collection. Residents are encouraged NOT to include the following on their pile:

  • bricks and concrete
  • commercial builders waste
  • car parts and tyres, including car batteries
  • dirt and stones
  • garden waste (e.g. trees, grass, potted plants)
  • gas bottles
  • general household waste (e.g. food scraps)
  • glass and mirrors
  • hazardous wastes (e.g. chemicals, oil, asbestos)
  • household waste that normally goes into your waste or recycling bin
  • liquids

Items that are deemed unacceptable will not be picked up by the collectors. Kerbside piles with sharp objects and dangerous items, or are too heavy to be lifted by two people might not be collected as well.

In preparing the items for collection, remember to keep the piles organised by the kerb, freeing the footpaths and roadways. Items should also be secured, especially if severe weather is expected.

Doors from cabinets or refrigerators should be removed to ensure that no animals or curious small children will be trapped inside. There are serious threats of children suffocating in refrigerators that still have doors attached.

Illegal dumping fines may apply if unacceptable material is not removed within seven days of the notified collection period.  As of July 2021, a penalty unit is equal to $137.80.

For items that were not collected, residents have the option to bring these to resource recovery centres or donate to reuse and recycle facilities or organisations like GIVIT and Charitable Recycling Australia.
