Collection tips

Make sure your bins are collected quickly and safely by following these simple tips:

  • Put your bins out the night before collection day.
  • Bin handles must face your house so lids open to the street.
  • Place bins half a metre apart.
  • Make sure lids are closed.
  • Do not put extra waste or recycling next to or on top of bins.
  • Do not place bins close to trees or cars or under low-hanging cables.
  • Do not store your bins permanently on the nature strip.
  • A weight restriction of 100kgs applies to all bins.
  • Dispose of chemicals safely at a Chemical CleanOut.
  • Dispose of needles and syringes safely at pharmacies.

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.
