IF YOUR neighbours have added a few retro lawn-accessories in the last couple of days, it’s probably not because they’re planning a hipster-garden party.

Tamworth Regional Council is kicking off its first round bulky household waste collection on Monday, June 19.

In the meantime, council has reminded residents they should be putting out their bulky waste on the day of their regular bin night and keeping their kerbside waste under two cubic metres

Commencing on Monday in Tamworth, Moonbi, Kootingal and Attunga, people can get rid of any household waste including: bedding, old-furniture, small white-goods, TVs, computers and printers.

“We want people to avoid putting out heavy items over 30 kilograms, that’s a safety issue for the guys collecting the waste,” council manager of waste and water Dan Coe said.

“Any demolition waste, any broken glass, that should not be put out.” Gas bottles and motor parts are also prohibited. Collections in Manilla, Barraba and Nundle start on Monday, June 26.
