Green Waste Services

Household Green Waste Service 

There are two different types of green waste services available:

Green waste household collection - fortnightly collection of your 240 litre green lidded bin (if available at your location)

Green waste disposal - at our nominated waste facilities , free of charge.


Household bins are collected fortnightly (on the opposite week to your recycling). Place your bins on the nature strip with the wheels facing the property the night before collection day. Please do not overfill your bin or place extra green waste around the bin.

Check which day your household green waste is collected.


Find out how to receive a green waste service on the Household Bin Services page.
