Council collects general waste from Monday through to Thursday each fortnight. All household waste collected by the waste collection service goes to landfill in Drysdale.
We provide all residential properties with a 120-litre waste bin. If your bin gets damaged by the collection contractor or it's starting to fall apart due to general wear and tear, we'll replace it free of charge.
We ask all residents to please bring in your rubbish bin as soon as possible after collection. If you won't be home to bring in your bin, consider asking a neighbour to help.
We also undertake bin inspections and waste and resource audits throughout the year to collect data that is used to develop community education campaigns. Complete confidentiality is maintained during these audits.
