Collection Schedules

Which Bin? Which Night?

Please note: The below collection schedule is only applicable to households who have received their new 140L waste bin, which will be emptied fortnightly.
Weekly waste collections will continue to households until the 140L bin is received
There are no changes to the Recycling or FOGO collection schedule. Thank you for your patience. 

To find out when your bins are collected, type your address below


Please put your bins out before 9pm on the dates listed above

Place bins on the nature strip of your property where the collection vehicles can easily access them.

Place bins:

  • 1 metre apart.
  • Away from obstructions like street signs, power poles, trees or vehicles.
  • Make sure the bin lid is fully closed and rubbish contained within the bin.
  • Bags placed beside bins will not be collected.

If you are finding your FOGO bin is very heavy to move then it is probably too heavy for the collection vehicle to lift. Remove some of the material for next collection.

Remember no soil, dirt, rocks or rubble.

Christmas, New Year and Public Holidays

Collections remain the same over all public holidays, however please place your bins out before 6pm on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Residents also receive an extra recycling collection over Christmas and New Year.
Refer to the collection schedule portal above for the date.
