Kerbside collections

New council rubbish, recycling and food scraps collections

Together, we can halve the amount of household waste we send to landfill each year.*

New rubbish, recycling and food scraps kerbside collections begin July 2021. Households will have received a 140L rubbish bin, a 240L recycling bin and a 23L food scraps bin. The service costs $210 for the first year and will be charged in residential rates. Households can also choose to have an additional 240L garden waste collection for an extra $60 (4-weekly collections) or $95 (fortnightly collections) for the first year.  

Not sure when to put your bins out? Check your bin for your collection week and then check your collection calendar for when the service starts for you. The day of the week for collection is the same as it’s always been for your street or suburb.
