Kerb Side Collection
Important guidelines for kerb side rubbish collection:
- Place your bin on the kerb by 6am on the day of collection
- Place your bin one metre (1m) from the road ensuring the lid opens to the road
- Bin lids should be closed and not overflowing to prevent unwanted pests
- Your green and yellow lid bins should be placed a half metre (0.5m) apart to ensure that the hydraulic arm on the collection vehicle is able to reach, lift and empty your bins
- Do not place your bins under a tree canopy
- All bins should be returned to your property within 24 hours of service.

Assisted bin service
