In previous years, Council has conducted one annual kerbside collection program for the pickup of bulky waste and items from residences throughout the region. With the recent organisational re-structure, the kerbside collection has been re-assigned to the Regulatory Services department. In order to best provide a bulky waste disposal service, we are seeking the community’s input via a brief survey. The responses from the survey will help us with the planning of the service, assist with meeting the community’s needs, and identify improvements. Paper versions of the survey will be available at the Council offices and libraries.
Longreach Regional Council will confirm the date of the next kerbside collection once finalised. In the mean time please utilise the local Waste Disposal Facilitie which are free to access for our residents.
The zones and dates for collection are as follows:
Longreach - Zone 1
North of the highway
Longreach - Zone 2
West of Eagle St. (including Cramsie Estates)
Longreach - Zone 3
Eagle St. to Falcon St.
