Household Clean Up Dates

Everything you need to know about our clean up service.

Online Calendar

At the beginning of each calendar year residents are provided with their Household Cleanup Service dates which notifies them of all clean up dates and how to present clean up material.  You can also use our online calendar to confirm when your next clean up date is scheduled for.  Clean up dates vary across the LGA so please make sure you check the online calendar to confirm the correct dates.  Sometimes even a near by street could be in a different clean up zone.

All residents in the former Rockdale LGA have four scheduled clean up services a year.  Residents in the former Botany Bay LGA have two planned clean up services and two on call services.  To book an on call service please contact customer service on 1300 581 299.



Clean Up Service

Bayside Council collects mattresses, metals and white goods from your scheduled or pre-booked clean up using a flatbed truck to maximise recycling and recovery rates. You can help by separating these items from the general waste pile.

In September 2018, disposal facilities began a trial to send Council’s clean up material to a recovery facility to improve diversion from landfill. In 2019, Council is seeking to secure a long-term commitment to meet our 2030 vision of at least 85% landfill diversion.

The clean-up week in your zone will take place from 6am from the day specified on the fridge magnet. Please follow guidelines to ensure your waste is compliant for removal.

Your scheduled collection dates are available on the Council issued magnet, on the Waste Services App, on the Council website, or available by calling Customer Service on 1300 581 299. Below is an example of what your Clean Up magnet looks like. If you have not received a magnet, please contact Council on the above number for one to be sent to you.
