Your new 140 litre glass-only bin (purple lid) will be delivered to all residents and businesses by mid-February 2020. If you haven’t received one by 20 February, please call us. In the meantime, please continue to keep glass out of your recycling bin and use the public place glass-only bins. These will be removed from all locations by 16 March.
The new 140 litre glass-only bins will be collected every four weeks.
Your collection day and the bins you need to put out for collection each week depend on the area that you live in.

No, there isn’t an option to opt-out. The new four bin service (general waste, recycling, FOGO and glass) is being provided as the standard service to all households to reduce waste going into the general waste bin. We see this as a vital step in reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
Commercial properties that require multiple glass-only bins can request more by contacting our customer service team on (03) 5422 0333.
