Currently the service includes a 240 litre recycling bin and a 240 litre landfill (general waster) bin. Both are picked up fortnightly.

From 6 July 2020 Council is changing the kerbside waste collection service to a four-bin system which will have the following bins:

  • 240 litre recycling bin(collected fortnightly)
  • 240 litre organics (green waste) bin for collecting both food and garden waste (collected fortnightly)
  • 140 litre landfill (general waste) bin(collected fortnightly)
  • 140 litre bin with a purple lid for separating glass (collected every four weeks)

Rural residents can still choose whether you receive Council’s waste collection service or you manage your waste yourself, however from 6 July all residents who use Council’s service will need to separate their waste into those four-bins.
