Bin collection eligibility Bin collection eligibility

Waste collection services operate on a user pays model. So collection is only provided for Council-supplied bins (with logo) on properties paying for cleansing services. Some properties, however, may be ineligible for bin collection or sit outside the bin collection service area. To check if your property is eligible for Council rubbish collection services call 4970 0700.
