Christmas Garbage Collection

Garbage bins will be collected on Christmas Day for houses that would normally be scheduled for Monday collection. Council has given special permission to the Waste Collection contractors to start work at 4am on Christmas Day to allow for early closure of our waste facilities and to enable drivers to get back to their families, so please ensure your bins are ready for collection. As they're starting early, make sure your bins are out the night before. If you have any questions, please call the Waste Hotline on 1800 805 305.

Spring has sprung, and so has the garden!

Garden Organics bins are offered to residential areas in the Wollondilly Shire.

Did you know that if the grass is wet when it goes into the bin, it can increase the weight of the bin by about 70%.

The lifting capacity of the collection truck is up to 80kg only.

Putting wet grass or squashing extra grass into your bin may make it too heavy, and if it exceeds 80kg it may not be emptied.

Composting for large amounts of garden organics is a good option for residents. Customers are able to purchase additional services if one bin isn’t sufficient.

Please contact the Waste Hotline on 1800 805 305 for further information. 


Waste Management Centres

Wollondilly Shire Council has one waste management centre, the Bargo Waste Management Centre. However there are other facilities within the region to assist residents in managing their waste and recycling.


Waste Minimisation and Resource Recovery

Australians use thousands of tonnes of batteries every year, most of which end up in landfill. This is a problem because a wide range of battery types contain toxic metals such as cadmium, mercury and lead, and over time the chemicals in these batteries can be toxic to the environment.


Waste and Recycling Collection Services

Wollondilly Shire Council and JR Richards & Sons are proud to be partnered with White Ribbon Australia. Our garbage collection trucks now have a white ribbon to support and stop violence against women. Stand up, speak out, act.
