Be a good sort and get the right things in the right bins:
Please put your bins out the night before collection or prior to 5.30am on the day of collection.
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.
Kerbside bins remain the property of council, but you must look after them and keep them clean. If a bin is stolen, lost or damaged, fill out a bin replacement form.
Some of our collection trucks are divided into two compartments (known as split body trucks), allowing them to collect both your recycling and your general waste. The collections are kept separate within the truck and then dropped off at the recycling facility and the landfill.
You’ll usually see these trucks in smaller townships, where there are less properties to collect waste from. Using just one truck for both waste streams means fewer trucks travelling on our roads.
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.
Urban properties receive a 120 litre landfill bin, a 240 litre recycling bin, and a 240 litre organics bin.
Rural properties receive a 240 litre landfill bin and a 240 litre recycle bin.
