How to order a new bin

If you are a new resident at a new property that doesn't have a household waste bin, contact us to order one.

If you live in an apartment or unit complex with 7 or more dwellings, you can organise a new household waste bin through your body corporate or managing agent.

If you are renting at a property, you should talk to your landlord or managing agent about ordering a new bin. Applications for changes to bin sizes or new bins should be completed by the owner or managing agent of a property as it affects rates.
