Rubbish & Recycling Bins

The household rubbish bin (an 80 litre bin with a dark green lid) is collected weekly - Monday to Friday – on the same day of the week throughout the entire year. Garbage will be collected on all public holidays that fall on the Monday to Friday schedule, including Good Friday and Christmas Day.

Bins should be placed on the nature strip with the wheels facing your property at dusk the night before collection day. Then, the bin must be back on your own land by the end of the day of collection. All household waste should be bagged to prevent spillage during collection.
