Bin Types

  • Garbage bins (dark green lid) are for household rubbish. This is collected weekly. 
    • Rubbish in this bin goes to landfill. Material that can be reused, recycled, or composted should not go in this bin.
    • Rubbish should be contained in bags or wrapped. You must bring your bin in on the same day it is emptied.
  • Green Waste bin (bright green lid) is collected fortnightly.
  • Recycling bin (yellow lid) is collected on alternate weeks.

Your bins must be out by 6am on your collection day. Make sure you leave at least half a metre between the bins, with the wheels away from the road.
