Bin collection days and putting your bins out

  • Bin collection continues as normal, but bins may be collected a little earlier in the day than usual. This is to allow our contractor to stagger employee start times.
  • As always, please put your bins out the night before to ensure they are out in plenty of time to be collected.
  • Bins collection days have not changed.

To see your next bin collection days, start typing your street address below and wait for it to appear in the drop-down field. 

  • Place bins out the night before your collection day.
  • Bins should be returned to your property within 24 hours after collection.
  • Place bins near the kerb with handles away from the road.
  • Leave 50cm between bins and other obstacles.
  • Bins must not weigh over 70kg each.
  • Do not over fill bins - lid must be able to be closed.

If your property is in a court: 

  • Please place bins on the straight section - not in the bowl or 'T'
  • Do not park vehicles in court bowl or 'T' on collection day this prevents waste vehicles from being able to turn and can disrupt collection.
  • Bins will still be collected on public holidays.
  • On Code Red fire days, bins will not be collected in bushfire-prone areas, such as the Hills. However you should still put your bins out on collection day and they will be picked up as soon as possible afterwards.
  • On Extreme Fire Danger days, bins may be collected earlier than usual.
