How do I get a bin for my newly-built house?

When our rates team receives a certificate of occupancy from the building surveyor, they will automatically put in a customer request to have your bins delivered to your newly-built house.

How many bins do we get?

Properties receive a 120 litre rubbish bin and a 240 litre recycling bin.

When should I put out my bins?

Please put your bins out the night before collection or prior to 5.30am on the day of collection.

Where should I place my bins?

Place bins on the nature strip in front of your property where the collection vehicles can easily access them. Bins should be one metre apart and one metre back from the street. Also make sure the bins aren’t near obstructions like street signs, power poles, trees or vehicles.

Maintenance and replacement of bins

Bins remain the property of council, but you must look after them and keep them clean. If a bin is stolen or lost or damaged fill out a bin replacement form.
