Kerbside clean-up on its way

The first collections in the Clarence Valley’s annual kerbside clean-up will start on May 16 and the service will make its way around the region for the following five weeks. All households that have a weekly waste collection service in the Clarence Valley Council area will be eligible. The service is not available to businesses or residential properties with a commercial waste service. Clarence Valley Council general manager, Scott Greensill, encouraged residents to check the schedule delivered to their homes on council’s web site or in The Daily Examiner and only put their items out for collection on the Sunday prior to their collection week. Items should be placed where people would normally put their bins for their normal waste collection service. Mr Greensill said e-waste (such as televisions, computers and other electronic equipment), green waste, building waste, microwaves and a range of other products would not be collected. The volume of waste per household will not exceed two cubic metres (one small box trailer) and be no longer than 1.5 metres. He encouraged people to visit to find out when collections would occur in their area and what items would and would not be accepted.
