Some of our services have different times over the holidays, including waste collections previously scheduled for Christmas and New Year's Day. Read about the changes.

New waste truck rollout

Have you seen our new waste truck fleet?

We’re pretty excited about them and hope you are too.

Every year, our waste trucks perform around 4.5 million bin lifts during waste and green waste collections. The new trucks have a long life cycle and are hard wearing.

They also have a range of efficiency features and emission reduction technology making them cheaper to run and better for the environment.

Other upgrades that will help us deliver service improvements include a shorter wheel base, making it easier for us to navigate some of the City’s tight and narrow streets, and ‘extenda slide’ long-reach arms, meaning they can now collect bins that were once inaccessible.

Reducing waste doesn’t need to be a chore.
