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.

Please note, 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.

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.
