Garbage and Recycling Collections


  • To ensure your bin is emptied, it must be placed kerbside/roadside the night prior to collection day.
  • Building materials, pipes, wires, planks of wood and concrete are not domestic waste and must not be placed in your garbage bin. If you have any waste you wish to dispose of that is not domestic waste, please contact Council for advice on disposal.
  • The lifting arms on our vehicles have a weight capacity of 85 kg and cannot lift a bin over 85 kg. Large items (eg concrete) can create havoc with our compaction unit and therefore cannot be collected.
  • Putting loose plastic bags and non-recyclable paper inside another before placing in bins help stop them from "flying away" as the bin is emptied.
  • You may be requested to place your mobile garbage bin on the opposite side of the road to the property to make the collection schedule more efficient.
