Your three bin collection service


Weekly organics service,  Fortnightly recycling service,  Fortnightly landfill service


For two weeks from Monday 25 December to Sunday 7 January, you can place all three bins on the kerbside for weekly collection.

This is to help households cope with the extra waste generated during the festive season.

Bin collection tips:

•Bin collections will go ahead even if the collection day falls on a public holiday.
• Put your bins out the night before your normal collection day. If your bins are not out, we cannot send the truck back a second time.
•Where there is space, place your three bins side-by-side at the kerbside.
•If there is not enough room for all three bins to sit side-by-side, place the red landfill bin at the front and recycling and organics bins at least one metre behind it.
•Park your cars in driveways and garages if possible to give collection trucks more room.
•Take your bins in ASAP after they have been emptied.
•Please be patient with our drivers as collection may vary.

We know it's a busy time of year, but please remember to continue #ReduceReuseRecycle
