Waste Collection Waste Collection

Council's garbage operators collect rubbish on the following days:

  • Collection from a Residential address is every Thursday
  • Collection from a Commercial address is every Monday and Thursday

Council operators will empty wheelie bins from the kerbside in front of each property on the designated collection day.  Only rubbish in the Council provided wheelie bins will be picked up.

Residents are asked to place their bin on the kerbside with the wheels facing toward their house on the morning of, or night before, collection day, and to remove their bins from the street as soon as possible after collection.  Council guarantees service on your collection day.

Your waste service is an annual service.  If your collection day falls on a public holiday (including Christmas Day) then your waste will be collected the next working day.

These bins can only have general household waste placed in them.  All kitchen waste, vacuum dust and moist material are required to be placed in a plastic bag.

Items that should not be placed in a wheelie bin include:

  • Hot ashes
  • Unwrapped vacuum dust
  • Liquids
  • Syringes
  • Oils
  • Paints and solvents
  • Timber and building materials
