Rubbish bins

Rubbish bin with red lid

Your 140 litre rubbish bin (red or dark green lid) is for all general household waste that is non-recyclable, and is collected every week.

Bin replacement program

If you've received a letter from Council to advise that your rubbish bin is due for replacement, please refer to New bin rollout underway for more information.

Do's and don'ts

  • Don't overfill your bin so that the lid can't close as this will attract animals.
  • Don't leave rubbish next to your bin as it will not be collected.
  • Do position your bin with the handle facing away form the road and 1 metre away from obstructions such as trees and walls.
  • Do make sure your bin weighs less that 150 kg, otherwise the truck cannot lift it.
  • Don't put any of these in your rubbish bin:
  • Garden clippings
  • Syringes
  • Paint or solvents
  • Building materials
  • Pesticides, oils or chemicals
  • Recyclables
  • Hot or cold coals.
