Rubbish - collected fortnightly (due to COVID-19)
  • Rubbish will be collected fortnightly on your normal recycling week.

  • During these extraordinary circumstances, everything (recycling included) will be sent to landfill to protect the health and wellbeing of our communities, staff and contractors.

  • Please put your rubbish and recycling (except glass) in an official yellow council bag inside your big black and yellow wheelie bin, so staff do not have to touch it.

  • If your bag is not in your wheelie bin, it won’t be picked up.

  • Glass recycling bins will not be emptied due to the risk of spreading the virus.

  • If anyone in your household is sick, please double bag your rubbish and recycling, but only the outside bag needs to be an official bag.

On alternate weeks, either Week 1 or Week 2.

Your rubbish & recycling must be at the gate before 7:30am to guarantee collection.

The easiest way to remember your collection day is to check the ID sticker on the wheelie bin allocated to your address, which will show the day and week. In the example below it is Tuesday, Week 1.

On any week where there is a public holiday on a normal collection day, all rubbish collections will be a day later than the normal. This will be advertised on our Facebook page, our website and in the local newspapers.

What Week is it?

Wheelie bins and replacement parts

If your bin is damaged or stolen, contact us to order a replacement bin. Parts can also be replaced if they become damaged.

It's a good idea to label your bins with your address to avoid any ownership issues.
