When is my bin collection day?

You can download a copy of our Waste Collection Calendar to determine your collection day, Waste Collection Calendar 2018

Copies are distributed to residents each year with the first quarter rates.

Bin pickups over Christmas and New Year will be collected one day later.

Three Bin System

The three bin system, allows for residents to use a weekly general waste collection (red)and fortnightly recycling (yellow)and green waste collections (green)(alternating weeks for recycling and green waste).

Anything that grows can go in the green bin including organic matter such as grass clippings, flowers and plants.

Red lid
There are very few items that now need to go in the general waste (rubbish) red lid bin; disposable nappies, sanitary items, soft plastics (such as plastic bags, film and wrappers), polystyrene, broken crockery and broken glass.
