Having the family around for Christmas this year, but the yard looks a bit shabby?

The City of Wagga Wagga’s next Free Tip Day is Sunday 13 November – just in time for some last-minute spring cleaning before the festive season kicks off.

There will be no charge for household rubbish, garden waste and mixed recyclables taken to the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre (GWMC) on the day, which is open from 7am to 4.30pm.

"With Christmas around the corner, it’s the perfect time to tidy up the garden after the recent wet weather, or to clean out the shed or garage," Commercial Operations Sector Manager Caroline Angel said.

"Free Tip Days complement the City of Wagga Wagga’s normal service, which includes more materials that can be disposed of for free every day due to increased recycling capability at Gregadoo Waste Management Centre."

Televisions, computers and computer equipment can be disposed of for free, not just on Free Tip Day, but every day that the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre is open, as part of the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme. This offer is available to householders and small businesses only.

"You can also dispose of polystyrene for free all year round at GWMC," Ms Angel said.

"Council can reprocess it on-site for reuse into a range of recycled products."

Special wastes such as tyres, builders waste, refrigerative items, mattresses and gas bottles are not included in the free disposal day and will be charged as per normal fees and charges. Free disposal is limited to cars, vans, utes and single axle trailers only.
