How often are bins collected?
- Recycling bins and Food organics and garden organics (FOGO) bins are collected once a week.
- Household waste is collected every 2 weeks.
Find out more about the different bins available for kerbside collections and read about why we are changing some of our bin colours.
Bins are collected as usual on all public holidays, except Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Good Friday. We will announce alternative collection days on our Changes to Council services on public holidays page.
Bin collections start from 5 am on main roads and from 6 am in residential streets.
How to put your bin out
Put your bin out the night before your collection day:
- on the nature strip
- close to your driveway
- clear of all obstacles, such as trees, poles and parked cars
- with the bin handle facing your property.
If your bin is not emptied on your collection day, let us know within 2 business days. You can use our Report a bin problem e-form.
