Making sure your bins are collected

Here are some simple things to remember when putting out your kerbside bin.


Close the bin lid

Bins are emptied by a truck with a mechanical arm, so lids must be closed to avoid spillage. Heavy, overfilled bins cannot be lifted.

Be on time

Place your bin on the kerbside the night before or prior to 6am on collection day.

Do not put extra garbage around the bin

Extra bags or boxes placed around your kerbside bins will not be collected.

Christmas and Public Holidays

Our waste and recycling services operate throughout the year. When your collection day falls on a public holiday it will still be collected.
