Bulk Waste Collection

The City of Albany’s Bulk Waste Collection is a convenient service facilitated by Cleanaway, designed to assist residents in disposing of their large volumes of waste.

This year, the City is conducting a Bulk Green Waste Collection from 27 May to 28 June 2024.

This includes garden prunings, branches, leaves, and other organic materials generated from routine landscaping and gardening activities.

Make sure to place your waste on the verge no more than 7 days prior to your zone start date. Waste placed on the verge more than 7 days prior, or after the truck has passed, may result in an infringement notice.
