Useful tips and information:

  • Make sure your containers are presented for 7am on the day of your scheduled collection
  • Can we see your food caddy?, please make sure this is placed in front of your other containers as it is collected by a separate crew.
  • If your bins were presented for 7am on your scheduled collection day on the footpath nearest the edge of your property, or if we have an agreement to collect these from your property, and they have been missed, please let us know and report it online.
  • Don't forget the Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) will both be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing day and New Years Day, for more information about opening times, please visit the HRCs section.
  • Before you visit the HRCs why don't you check our 'view the Queue' camera's which are at the entrance of both sites, so you can plan your visit.
  • If you would like to download a collection calendar for your property, or you don't know what day your bins are normally collected you can now view and find out by using our:
