  • Double, single, and triple mattresses –maximum of six per household
  • Armchairs - maximum of three per household
  • Couches - maximum of two per household
  • Padded foot-stools - maximum of two per household

The event is being held specifically for domestic customers at Silliot Hill Civic Amenity Centre, Brownstown, Kilcullen on Sunday October 3 between 9am to 3pm.

Only household waste which complies with this scheme (as outlined above) will be accepted at the Civic Amenity Site on the day (Sunday October 3).
