POLL: Kerbside clean-up confusion creates eyesore

RESIDENTS who have placed items on the footpath for collection have been asked to take them back.

Council's free kerbside collection service won't start until July 13.

City Infrastructure Committee chairwoman Cheryl Bromage said the program would run citywide for 10 weeks from July 13 and residents would be notified two weeks before collection by post when to leave items out for collection.

"I would ask residents not to leave items out on the kerb until they have been notified. It makes the city look like an eyesore and with storm season approaching it creates potential hazards," Cr Bromage said.

Residents at Barellan Point, Dinmore, Eastern Heights, Gailes, Haigslea, Ironbark, Mt Marrow, New Chum, One Mile and Woodend are to have items out for collection by July 13.

Collection is limited to:

  • Two cubic metres in volume (one small box trailer)
  • Items easily and safely lifted by two people
  • No sharp or dangerous objects
  • Keep the piles tidy on the kerb so the footpath or roadway is kept clear
  • Doors must be removed from refrigerators and cupboards
  • Outdoor play equipment must be dismantled
