Bin collection services

Your garbage bin is collected weekly, on the same day each week. 

We are updating the colour of our garbage bins. Your garbage bin will now have a red lid so you can easily identify it. Your garbage bin may have a light green lid or a red lid while we complete this process.

You can also download a copy of the Waste Guide(PDF, 4MB) for a detailed guide to all our waste services.

Find out when your bin day is by using our handy tool on the Know my bin day page.

As a business owner, you are responsible for arranging the disposal of the waste generated by your business.

Council provides kerbside services to businesses that generate small volumes of waste and recycling, similar in size to what is generated by a residential home.

The type of waste produced by your business will determine your eligibility for these services.

Find out what rubbish goes in your garbage, recycling and organics bins by visiting the what rubbish goes in my bin? webpage.

Bins should be placed with the wheels facing away from the road and within one metre of the kerb. Please place bins out the night before your collection day.

Please allow at least one metre between your bin and any other objects such as parked cars, light poles, trees and other bins.

If you live in a court, please do not place bins at the end of the court. Our drivers will place yellow dots in the correct area to place your bin for safe collection by our trucks.

If you have any questions or need assistance with bin placement please contact our Customer Service team on 9205 2200.

You must report a missed bin within 2 working days of your collection day. For example, if your collection day is Tuesday you must report it to us by 4pm on Thursday. Please don't report missed bins before 2pm on your collection day as the truck may be running behind schedule.

Report a Missed Bin

Our trucks will not return to collect bins that were not placed out in time. Bins must be placed out before 5.30am on the day of collection or the night before.

You can report a stolen or damaged bin to us using the online form below.

Council will replace or repair your bin if it is damaged or stolen at no charge.
