The impacts of COVID-19 continue to change on a daily basis, and Council and Council's contractors are not exempt from its impact. In the event that frontline staff are impacted, service delays may occur.
We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis, and would ask residents to please be patient should any delays occur in waste-related collections.
We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.
Bin collection schedules
We empty your waste and recycling bins once a week. Put your bins out on the street before 6 am on collection day. They will be emptied any time between 6 am to 8 pm that day. If your bin isn't picked up by 8 pm, contact us.
Make sure your bin is back on your property within 24 hours of it being emptied.
Look up bin day for your address on our map. Simply input your address into the search bar in the top-left corner. Alternatively, look at the table below.
