Waste Services

IMPORTANT NOTICE

To assist our waste contractor to continue providing an effective service to the community, please ensure that you follow the below waste and recycling requirements:

  • Bins must be placed on the kerb the night before your bin service day. Collection times can vary due to changes in schedules.
  • Ensure the bin lids are fully closed to avoid litter spillages.
  • For health and safety reasons, nappies are to be placed into bags before disposing of in your garbage bin.
  • Check there are no obstacles which would limit access to your bins by the collection vehicle.
  • Ensure that cars are not parked in the turning areas of a cul-de-sac or road on a service day.

We appreciate your assistance during this time.
