New council rubbish, recycling and food scraps collections
Together, we can halve the amount of household waste we send to landfill each year.*
That’s why we’re providing all households with new rubbish, recycling and food scraps bins to use alongside your current kerbside glass recycling crate from 1 July 2021. The service initially will cost $210 for the first year - including the existing charge for the glass recycling service of $37 a year - and be charged in residential rates from 1 July 2021 through a new targeted rate. Households will initially be provided with 140L rubbish bin, a 240L recycling bin and a 23L food scraps bin.
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.
