How to get the most out of your bin collection service
Bin collection days
You can find your next bin collection day and use the calendar to identify which collection (colour bin) is specific to each week. Black bins (household waste) should be placed out for collection on the alternative week to your green recycling bags/blue recycling bin and brown (garden waste) bin.
How to present your bins and recycling bags
On collection day place your bins and/or recycling bags at the edge of your property where it joins the footpath or road, closest to where the refuse vehicle passes.
The bin or bags must be placed out for collection by 7am on your day of collection. We cannot guarantee your collection will take place at the same time every fortnight. Bin lids should be closed and we are not able to take side waste on household waste (black bin) and garden waste (brown bin) collections.
Brown Bins - garden waste
Residents are provided with a brown bin in which to place garden waste such as;
Grass cuttings, leaves and shrub/bush trimmings
Dead flowers, plants and weeds all with soil shaken off
Trimmed branches no thicker than a standard food tin.
