Free domestic bulky waste cleanup for Muswellbrook, Denman and Sandy Hollow.

Stack your bulky waste on the kerbside on the weekend prior to collection. With the cooperation of residents adhering to guidelines, the service should conclude by the 24 March 2017

Crews will visit each property only once - be on time!
