Waste & Recycling
Council has created a mobile friendly website to assist with understanding which bin to put your items in. This can be easily bookmarked to your mobile device.
Re-using things is great way to reduce our waste. See how and why to reduce and reuse your items instead of throwing them away.
Recycling at work is not only good for the environment, but also your bottom line! Council has resources available to support recycling in your workplace.
Find out how council can help you with resources, tours and presentations.

Search your suburb and street to find out your bin collection day. General waste (green-lid) bins are collected weekly; recycling (yellow-lid) bins are collected fortnightly on the same day.
