Eurobodalla Shire residents can get rid of bulky items like furniture, fridges, microwaves, rolls of carpet and garden tools at a "hard waste collection" that begins this month.

The collection will start in Tilba on Monday, July 22, moving progressively north to finish at South Durras in early September.

The Eurobodalla Shire Council's manager of waste services Adam Patyus said the service applied to households receiving the domestic waste collection service.

"With a maximum limit of two cubic metres, you'll be able to get rid of bulky items like fridges, microwaves, rolls of carpet, garden tools and furniture," Mr Patyus said.

"Three separate collection vehicles will visit each street. One truck will collect metal to be taken to the waste management facilities for recycling, while another will collect items such as fridges, freezers and air conditioning units - to be degassed before recycling. The third truck takes everything else."

Mr Patyus said residents should put waste out just before the collection date for their area - keeping everyone safe and neighbourhoods a little tidier - and it was helpful to separate metal items.

"Junk that won't be collected includes televisions and computer products such as monitors and printers. These can be taken to Council's waste management facilities free of charge all year-round," he said.

The council said other bulky items like mattresses, tyres, motor vehicle parts and vegetation, as well as building materials would not be collected and should be taken to a waste facility.

Chemicals and hazardous material such as paint, gas bottles and oil would not be collected and residents were encouraged to drop these off for free at one of council's Household Chemical Cleanout collections in September or at the Community Recycling Centre at the Surf Beach Waste Management Facility.
