For the past two decades, usually just before the end of each Financial Year, Council has offered a bulky waste collection service.

North Arm Cove is a quiet little coastal village now but had some dreams been realised it could well have turned into a bustling port city. " The most central spot, where the new city is to be in the Great Port of the New Northern State. "
