Handy Tips

  1. If you are unsure of your bin day, please look outside your street to see if others have put their bin out.
  2. If it’s windy outside and your bin is barely filled, in order to avoid the bin toppling over and spilling its contents, you might want to consider waiting until it is sufficiently filled for collection.
  3. If your bin is only getting partially emptied, then it may be overstuffed or compacted.  If the rubbish would have been pushed tightly against the bin walls, it may get stuck at the bottom when the bin gets tipped completely upside-down.  Please put rubbish loosely to ensure that they get emptied completely. If your food scraps are sticking, put a little bit of water in the bottom of your bin to loosen things up.

Public Holiday Bin Collection

Often when there is a public holiday, the day your bin/s are collection will be affected. Please check the calendar below to find out how the upcoming public holiday affects your recycling and rubbish services.
