Coronavirus update 13 March 2020

Council has closed some facilities and cancelled all events until 14 April. Learn which services have been affected.

Please leave your green waste bin out until 5pm on your collection day so we can change your bin lid in preparation for FOGO. More details.

Book a bundled green waste collection

Residents who have their kerbside bins collected by Council can book to have bundled green waste collected twice a year in April and October. This is an additional service to the green waste bin collection

Each January, you can also book a Christmas tree collection.

Collection days

Bundled green waste collections are not scheduled for a specific date. Your green waste will be collected within your chosen week.
