Our waste challenge

We provide residents with a convenient recycling, garbage and green waste bin collection services.

Using your bins correctly ensures that all recyclable and compostable materials are processed effectively and it saves these precious resources from ending up in a landfill.

Save $50.35 a year off the Council waste charge by reducing waste and downsizing from a 140-litre bin to an 80-litre bin.

Fill out our contact us form, and we can call you to discuss the right size bin for your property.

Waste challenge tips

  • Check for recycling in every room. Many items in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, lounge and study can go in your recycling bin.
  • Make sure items are empty. Items don't need to be sparkling clean, just empty. Remove solid food scraps, like pizza and leftovers.
  • Keep recycling out of plastic bags. If you put your recycling in plastic bags, it will end up in a landfill because it can't be sorted and recycled.
  • Make recycling easy. Place separate rubbish and recycling bins in each room of your house to make recycling easy. If you don't have enough room for two bins, try a small box or container under the bench or in a cupboard to collect recycling.
  • Garden waste. Use the green waste service or compost.
  • Food waste. Compost, worm farm and reduce your food print.
  • Household chemicals. Find out about our Detox your home program.
  • Electronic waste. Computers an can be picked up and recycled through our hard waste service.
