Recycling and general waste bins are emptied on alternative weeks, with organic waste on a weekly rotation. The bin service is compulsory and everyone receives the suite of bins that correlate to their property type.
Urban residents receive a weekly organics (green) waste service while recycling and general waste bins are emptied on alternative weeks (fortnightly).
Rural residents have their general waste collected weekly and their recycling collected fortnightly, but do not have a green waste service.
The recycle bin service is complimentary. You can select your bin size without additional costs.
All recyclables should be rinsed, plastics and cans squashed with lids removed and the bins placed at the kerbside the night before collection. Recyclables are comingled in the one bin.
All property owners can change any bin size. Visit our page about Changing Your Bin Size.
Visit our Charges & Application Forms page to apply for new bins or to change your bin size.
Good Friday, Anzac and Christmas Day Collections
There are generally no waste collections on Good Friday and Christmas Day. Residents with a waste collection service that falls on one of these days should look out for information about their alternative collection day. Anzac Day in 2018 was collection as normal. Please check close to the date if you're not sure about a public holiday's collection schedule.
