We are seeking input from the community to help inform this strategy.
We invite you to complete our resident waste survey or attend one of our listening posts.
Further information is available in the Waste and Resource Management Strategy November update or from our Waste and Resource Management Strategy page.
Household garbage is collected weekly and recycling is collected on a fortnightly basis.
To find out when your garbage is collected, download the appropriate map below.
Your recycling will be collected on either week one or two.
The maps will indicate your week and the calendar can be used to find out the dates of your recycling collection.
Bins must be out ready for collection by 6am in the morning, weigh no more than 60kg and bin lids must be completely closed to ensure collection of recycling and garbage.
Garbage will be collected on all public holidays except Good Friday and Christmas Day.
Collections due on Good Friday will be undertaken the following Saturday.
Collections due on Christmas Day will be collected on the closest Saturday (i.e. if Christmas falls on Monday or Tuesday the collection will occur on the previous Saturday. When Christmas falls on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday the collection will take place the following Saturday).
