Bulk waste collections take place in March and September each year. The collections commence at 7am on the Monday following your scheduled weekend set-out dates.

Please note that it may take up to seven working days for your area to be collected. For those residents without a verge or with a very small verge please contact our Waste Management Services on 9311 8111 to make arrangements for collection.

Bulk waste deposited on the verge area prior to or after the collection dates indicated is considered a littering offence. Inspections will be carried out and fines issued.

Green waste

To find out your next green waste collection, use the Your neighbourhood tool. 

The Town provides a green waste collection each year in February, May, August and November. The collections commence at 7am on the Monday following your scheduled weekend set-out dates. The waste is taken to a green waste processing facility where it is shredded and turned into horticultural products for use in landscaping. Any contaminants in your waste (chicken wire, metal, building rubble, junk, household waste) results in waste being rejected by the processing facility.

Green waste contaminated with rubbish will not be collected.

For those residents without a verge or with a very small verge please contact our Waste Team on 9311 8111 to make alternative arrangements for collection.

Bulk waste can be placed on your verge on the allocated weekend which is prior the collection week as shown below:
