1st Thursday in January 2016

Peter arranged for a HOUSEHOLD CLEAN-UP SERVICE by Wollongong Council for Friday, 15th of January 2016. All items for disposal have to be out at the kerbsite by 6 am that day, but not more than 24 hours before. All recyclable items (like TVs, computers and mattresses) to be placed in a separate pile.

There are ten units (villas) in our complex. We had not asked for a clean-up service for quite some time. I expect, a lot of things are going to be thrown out. In our house more and more stuff is being piled up to go out for the clean-up day which is now only one week away.

    That’s a great idea – sadly not practised here. I remember when I lived in Germany how useful the Sperrmüll day was – and how many items disappeared before the official truck arrived. Many people threw stuff out that others carried off in delight – better than a yard sale!

      It seems to be the same here. Some people must be patrolling the streets. I have a pushbike that I will put out but do not expect it to be there for long.

        One man’s junk is another man’s treasure 🙂

        For us, Cat, the call is: Reduce, reduce, reduce! 🙂

    Great idea. Good luck with getting rid of all that stuff (I am in that process too, although don’t have the luxury of the clean-up day as I live in a rural area).

      We have to do it slowly, bit by bit, Elizabeth. The clean-up day is only the beginning. All our rooms need painting. C & M offered to do this for us. Yes, we all need good luck. 🙂
