Bin collection services

Changes to your bins are coming soon as part of the new food organics and garden organics service.
Starting from July, you will be able to put food waste in your lime-green lidded garden waste bin. 

Residents are provided with collection service dates for garbage and landfill, recycling and green waste.

On Anzac Day and Good Friday, bins will be picked up the next day for the remainder of the week, for instance a Friday collection will happen on Saturday.

Bin day: which bin and when

Select or enter your address to find the collection days for your street.

How to place your bins

You can help ensure that the truck can get to your bin by:

  • placing your bins near the kerb with the wheels nearest to the house
  • leaving 30cm between your bins
  • keeping the bins clear from trees, poles or parked cars
  • making sure the bin lids can close (not overfilled)
  • group bins of the same type together (garbage, recycling, green waste).

If you live in a court put your bins out on a straight part of the court.

Understand what to put in the bin: dispose of waste the right way.

Report a missed bin

Contact customer service by calling 9490 4222 if your bin hasn't been emptied. Please don't phone before 1pm to report a missed bin: collection time can vary each week.

If you forget to place your bin out or it is not set on the roadside correctly it won't be emptied. The next opportunity to have it emptied is the next scheduled collection day.

Bin sizes

Each household is supplied with 3 wheelie bins:

  • garbage for landfill (green lid OR red lid): an 80-litre or optional 120-litre bin
  • recycling (yellow lid): 240-litre bin
  • green waste (lime green lid): 120-litre or optional 240-litre bin.

If you ask for a larger bin you will be charged extra on your rates notice.

Bins belong to Council: you must leave them behind if you move.
