Usually, your package must include three bins (rubbish + recycling + food and garden). This helps to keep our city clean and environmentally friendly. A food and garden bin is optional if your property is less than 400m2.

If you are in a rental property, you must order the standard option containing the 120 litre garbage bin).

Our bins have changed colours. Newly ordered or replaced bins are as follows:

    Repair a damaged bin

    Repairing damaged bins is a free service, and depending on the type of repair (lids, pins and wheels), it will be fixed at your home.

    If the wheels are damaged, please make sure the bin is empty before we arrive to repair it. A repair person will generally fix the wheels within three working days.

    If your bin is damaged beyond repair, we will leave a card in your letterbox with more information. You must then call Council to arrange a replacement.
