Orange City Council will no longer require residents to sort their bulky waste collection into three piles for the imminent pick-up.


Originally, council was asking residents to sort their bulky waste into three piles so that materials such as mattresses and e-waste could be collected separately by three trucks.

However because of a driver shortage all the bulky waste - except fridges - will now be collected at the one time by a single truck.






Mayor Jason Hamling said there may be delays in the collections taking place.

“JR Richards will be doing the best they can but it may take longer than expected to collect the bulky waste this year,” Hamling said.


“The important thing is to remember that once it’s collected, please don’t put out any more waste.”


Bulky waste will now be sorted at the Ophir Road Resource Recovery Centre.


The bulky waste collection begins next Monday.
