Find out what goes in your general waste bin. Request a smaller bin and save.
Everything you put in your general waste bin ends up in the landfill. If you sort your waste and divert certain things from landfill we can reuse those materials, reduce emissions, and save waste disposal costs.
Your household general waste bin (red or dark green lid) is collected weekly.
What goes in the bin
- Broken glass, mirrors or ceramics
- Light bulbs
- Nappies and sanitary products
- Small household polystyrene or foam trays
- Household general waste
Clothing and shoes that are not suitable for donation to an op shop can be dropped off at transfer stations or go into the general waste bin.
Don't put in the bin
- Garden clippings
- Bulk packaging polystyrene
- Gas bottles
- Paints or solvents
- Bricks, rubble, timber or tiles
- Pesticides, oils or chemicals
Request a smaller bin
Downsize from your 240-litre bin to a smaller 140-litre bin. This will save you up to $177 on your rates (on a pro rata basis) and can be easier for you to move to the kerb and back.
If you are renting, contact the property owner or real estate agent to discuss changes to waste collection services.
