Kerbside Chipping Service trialled during August 2022


01 Jul 2022

From 1 August 2022, Blue Mountains City Council is trialling a Kerbside Chipping service for residents. Bookings for this service are open from 1 June - 27 July 2022.

The Kerbside Chipping Service is an option as part of your available two booked waste services. Residents can now choose two services, in any combination of:

  • Kerbside Pick Up
  • Facility Drop Off
  • Kerbside Chipping Service (during August only)

Your material will need to be presented to the kerb the weekend before your collection week, and it will be chipped in the following week. 

Branches must be less than 4 weeks old, be between 1 and 3 metres in length and have a maximum diameter of 15cm. Material will be chipped and left on the kerb. Once chipped, please be sure to remove materials promptly from kerbside.

Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said: “This additional service aims to provide more flexibility and convenience around our existing waste and recycling services and to support everyone to prepare for the bushfire season early.

“We’re also offering additional Green Bin collections during September, to help residents prepare for the bushfire season.”

A report will be presented at the February 2023 Council meeting with the outcomes of the trial.

Residents are also encouraged to complete a survey once their trial service has been completed. Go to yoursay.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/additional-waste-services
