Bin Placement

  • Bins should be placed on the nature strip before 6am on the day of collection with the front edge of the bin about 50cm from the back of the kerb and the wheels facing away from the road. Bins must be removed from the road reserve reasonably soon after being emptied.
  • Where kerbing is not present, for example in rural areas, bins must be placed at a safe location for emptying, between 50cm and 1 metre from the edge of the seal (or as agreed by the collection contractor).
  • In CBD areas bins must be put out no earlier than 4pm the day before collection and removed no later than 10am the day after collection. Repeat offenders will be liable for a fine after the issue of a warning.
  • Bins will not be emptied if the lid is left open or rubbish is overhanging from the bin. Please also ensure that bag ties are not hanging out of the bin.
  • The 240 litre recycling bin must be placed so that it can be emptied first (traffic approach side).
  • Bins should weigh no more than 90 kgs and be spaced at least 30cm apart.

Unacceptable Rubbish:

  • Hot ashes or liquids
  • Corrosive or flammable items
  • Builders rubble

Cleaning Your Bin

You can keep bins free of odour by cleaning them regularly with soapy water and a broom or handheld brush.
