Learn more on how Ipswich City Council is delivering the Resource Recovery Strategy on Shape Your Ipswich.
A significant change in Ipswich’s large item kerbside collection format has been adopted that transitions the popular program from a biennial (every two years) city-wide service to an annual on-demand collection.
This change is expected to take effect in the 2023-2024 Financial Year.
Council will communicate updates regarding the on-demand service through various channels including the Ipswich Bin App, council's website, social media and local newspapers.
Council will soon commence a procurement process for a service provider to bring a more flexible and convenient On-Demand Large Item Kerbside Collection service.
Residents are provided with options to source separate recycling materials and reduce amount of waste being taken to landfill.
The switch to an on-demand collection brings a better service with extra benefits:
Council first must finalise its procurement process for a service provider, and it is looking to have the new service commence in the financial year 2023 –2024. Council will provide updates as soon as they become available.
The final details of the On-Demand Large Item Kerbside Collection service, are still being investigated. However, it is anticipated that this service will change from a scheduled biennial (every 2 years) to an option of a service once a year booked at a convenient time for the household.
Council is undergoing a procurement process for a service provider for an On-Demand Large Item Kerbside Collection service. The plan is to keep the amount and types of waste currently accepted the same with the new collection service; however, any changes to the types or amount of waste that can be collected will be communicated to the community once they are finalised.
Council will continue to provide the On-Demand Large Item Kerbside Collection service as a free service and all details will be communicated to the community once they are finalised.
Council will communicate updates regarding the On-Demand Large Item Kerbside Collection service to the community through various channels, including the Ipswich Bin app, council website, social media, and local newspapers.
