Avoid bin contamination

  • Get it right on bin night; check the A-Z Recycling Guide
  • Check the list of the top recycling contaminants(PDF, 3MB)
  • Contamination occurs when incorrect items are placed in your bins, even in your garbage bin.
  • If you collect recyclable containers or green waste in plastic bags, remember to always EMPTY the bag into the bin.
  • Landfill is our most expensive way of disposing of waste. If it can be put into your recycle bin or green waste bin, do it.
  • Contamination is a form of pollution and an offence under Local Laws. If your bin is found to be contaminated, it will be stickered. You will be sent a letter, and you will be required to remove the incorrect items from your bin before it can be emptied.

Find your bin collection day

Your garbage bin will be collected once a week. 

Your recycling bin and your green waste bin will be collected on alternate weeks on the same day as your garbage.

Use the correct bin

For the most detailed information, refer to our 

Ensure an efficient service

  • Place bins out the night before or by 6am on collection day
  • Place bins with wheels facing away from the road
  • Place bins with half a metre space between each bin, with the front edge about half a metre from the kerb and one metre clear of any obstacles
  • If you live in a court bowl or dead end street, please place your bins along the straight section of road
  • Make sure the lid can close completely
  • Bins should be removed from the kerbside within 24 hours after collection
  • Do not remove any bins from your premises when you change residence
