Think it’s too hard or too costly to get rid of bulky unwanted items such as fridges, cars, loads of rubbish or tyres?

Local councils are acting to stop illegal dumping, with more affordable, safe and easy disposal options than ever before.

Fridges, car bodies, loads of rubbish, tyres, green waste and other bulky items can be safely disposed or recycled – and for less than you might think.

There are also commercial recyclers in Tasmania that can take unwanted goods for a fee – search online to find businesses near you (and some are happy to travel and collect materials too).

Commercial operators can be paid to take away unwanted goods. Household goods in usable condition may also be collected by some charities. Items posted on buy/sell/swap sites are also usually collected and may even be re-purposed or repaired.

Talk to a neighbour or friend about sharing a trailer load for disposal. Secure the load for transport and sort the materials in the trailer so they’re grouped together for quick and easy drop-off.
