Rubbish Collection

Our rubbish collection service is provided by our contractor Solo Resource Recovery to all households in townships and some properties in the rural areas. Recycling and green organics are collected fortnightly on the same day as your rubbish.

There are no changes to the scheduled collection days on public holidays. However, bins are to be out by 2.00am for collection on Christmas Day.

Rubbish Routes

You can find out information about your collection days from the Recycling and Waste Guide that is mailed to residents at the end of August each year. The Recycling and Waste Guide is also available for download in the Related Information section on this page, along with the Large Print Recycling and Green Organics Calendars.

You can also find out your collection days online using our interactive Near Me map, which shows if a particular road is on the designated rubbish route.

Some property owners who are not on a rubbish collection route may still receive a service by taking their bins to a collection point on an adjacent road where the service is provided. Contact Solo Resource Recovery to find out if you are able to receive a nearby waste collection service on 5633 2009 or for more information contact us on 5624 2411.

Missed Bins

If your bin has not been collected on the scheduled day, contact Solo Resource Recovery as soon as possible on 5633 2009.
