Household garbage is collected twice a week and recycling is collected fortnightly. Bins need to be placed on the verge by 7am on the relevant collection days.

Unit complex garbage collection is four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Unit recycling is collected every Thursday. Unit complex bins do not need to be placed on the verge, with contractors retrieving and returning bins from the specific enclosures.

If you have any bin enquiries, including requesting new service, bin repairs, missed bins collection days, please call Council's 24 hour customer service 08 8935 9922.
