Garden Waste Collections

Brown bin collections have been suspended on Friday 23 October due to Coronavirus. We apologise for the inconvenience. Brown bins will be collected on the next fortnightly collection.

What can be recycled in your brown bin?

Residents are provided with a brown bin for the following garden waste:

  • Dry grass cuttings, leaves and shrub/bush trimmings.
  • Windfall fruit.
  • Hedge trimmings.
  • Dead flowers, plants and weeds, all with soil shaken off.
  • Trimmed branches no thicker than a standard food tin.

What can't be recycled in your brown bin:

  • Soil, sand, gravel, bricks, rubble or stones. 
  • Textiles, shoes or clothes.
  • Food waste.
  • Animal waste
  • Toys.
  • Garden tools, garden ornaments or garden machinery such as lawn mowers. 
  • Vacuum cleaner contents.
  • Nappies.

On collection day, place your brown bin at the edge of your property where it joins the footpath or road, closest to where the refuse vehicle passes. The brown bin 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. Brown bins should be placed out for collection on the same day as your blue bin.
