Tamworth Regional Council water and waste operations manager Dan Coe warned residents about the restrtictions on items dumped for collection.

“The most common incorrect items put out for collection are tyres, fridges and gas bottles,” Mr Coe said.

“We encourage residents to use the service to dispose of household items such as general small household items, broken furniture, bedding and electrical appliances as well as e-waste which includes intact televisions, computers, computer monitors, printers and keyboards.”

He reminded locals to limit their load to about two cubic meters.

Residents with goods for collection are asked to pile them neatly on the kerbside at the same time they put their red-lidded bin out for collection

More information about what can be collected is available on council’s website.

An online poll conducted by The Leader, earlier this year, found the majority of voters were in favour of three annual bulky waste collections.

Sixty-one per cent of respondents said there should be three collections every years.

While 22 per cent said the schedule of two collections was perfect.
