Damaged or stolen bins

Important: Please ensure your bin remains kerbside (even overnight) and allow two business days for collection or repair to occur.

Make sure we can access your bins

Our waste contractor requires unimpeded access to bins. Any security gates or doors will need to be fitted with Council's master key.

It is also important to ensure that clean-up waste is not stored in bin rooms as it can obstruct bins, preventing them from being safely collected.
