Collection services for Residents

We provide the following collection services for residents:

  • Recycling and green waste is collected fortnightly, on alternating weeks.
  • Residents can request two (pre-booked) collections per year for hard waste or bundled branches.
  • Household chemical waste is collected by the Detox Your Home program.

Three wheelie bins are supplied to residents:

  • an 80 litre bin for garbage or optional 120 litre bin (larger option at an additional charge)
  • a yellow lid 240 litre bin for recycling
  • a lime green lid 120 litre bin for green waste or optional 240 litre bin (larger option at an additional charge).

Each bin has a serial number that is recorded against the address of your property.

Bins are council property and you are not permitted to take them when you move.

Missed collection, missing or damaged bin?

Please place your bins at the kerb no earlier than 3.00pm on the day before collection and take them back inside within 24 hours of collection.

If we missed collecting your bin or if your bin is missing or damaged, please call Customer Service on 9490 4222.


How to place your bins correctly on the kerb

Place your bins near the kerb with the wheels nearest to the house. Try and make sure trees, poles or parked cars do not obstruct them. If you live in a court put your bins on a straight part of the court. Please leave a minimum of 50 centimetres between your bins when you place them at the kerb. To prevent spillage, make sure your bins are not too full and the lid is closed properly.
