When does Council collect kerbside waste?

Council collects waste from Monday through to Thursday. For the collection day in your street, please refer to the collection map.

When do I have to bring in my bin?

Please bring in your rubbish bins as soon as possible after collection. If you won't be home to bring in your bins, consider asking a neighbour to help.

Council supplies residential properties with a 120-litre waste bin. Council will replace waste bins free of charge if they are damaged by the collection contractor or as a result of reasonable general wear and tear.

  • General household waste
  • Plastic bags
  • Nappies
  • Broken glass (wrapped)
  • Smoke alarms.

What material cannot be placed in the waste bin?

You cannot use your waste bin to dispose of:

What happens to the waste after it’s been collected?

All household waste collected by the waste collection service goes to landfill in Drysdale.

Council undertakes bin inspections and waste and resource audits throughout the year to collect data that is used to develop community education campaigns.

To ensure residents’ privacy, complete confidentiality is maintained during the inspections and audits.
