Bin collection day, scheduled clean up collection day and other relevant dates can be found on your waste calendar.

Extra collections and additional bins

There are times when residents may have extra garbage or recycling materials for collection. All waste must be presented for collection in the domestic bins. Council will not collect waste material that is placed on top of, or near your bin.  Residents can:

Book an extra collection of waste, recycling or garden organics bins or apply for a replacement bin or additional bin for waste, recycling or garden organics. It is important to note that any additional general waste bin (red lidded bin) is subject to an additional annual Domestic Waste Charge.

Associated fees for the supply of bins, ongoing servicing of new bins, and extra collections are provided in Council’s Schedule of Fees and Charges.

Stolen and damaged bins

If your bin is stolen or damaged, please contact our Customer Service 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.
