Council is now able to offer all ratepayers with a currently waste collection to increase their recycling bin from the current 120L bin to a 240L bin. If this is something that you would be interested in, please contact Council at your earliest convenience and we will arrange the new bin for you.
All residents have a green 120 litre wheelie bin for recycling and a 240 litre wheelie bin (red lid) for rubbish to be collected each fortnight. Please observe these requirements to assist with your collection:
If your bin is damaged or goes missing, you will need to advise Council in order for a replacement bin to be distributed. Your first replacement bin is free, subsequent bins will incur a replacement fee. Council encourages households to number your bin clearly to deter theft. If you wish to apply for an extra bin please contact Council. Additional waste collection charges will apply.
Contents from your domestic waste bin is transported to the Copping Landfill Site. This site is not open to the public.
