Extra collections and additional bins

We recognise there are times when residents may have extra garbage. Please note that Council will not collect garbage which is placed on top of or next to your bin.

You can now book an extra paid collection for $25 per bin. Additional garbage bins are available however they are subject to an additional annual Domestic Waste Charge of $500.

Stolen and damaged bins

If your bin is stolen or damaged please contact our Resource Recovery Hotline on 9083 8000 and we will investigate. Bin repairs such as fixing damaged lids, hinges, wheels and axles are free of charge. Replacing stolen or damaged bins can, however, incur a fee.
