Our waste services provide residents in the domestic collection area with three bins:

  • a red-lidded general waste bin that is collected weekly
  • a yellow-lidded recycling bin and a green-lidded garden organics bin that are collected fortnightly.

If you live in the domestic collection area, you can also take part in the annual kerbside hardwaste (junk) collection and the annual household chemical cleanout to drop off hazardous chemicals for free in our three major towns.

Hardwaste (junk) collection

The next hardwaste (junk) collection will be held between July and September 2016.

Household chemical cleanout

The next chemical cleanouts will be held in October 2016 in Moruya, Batemans Bay and Narooma.

Home composting

We plan to run our popular free home composting workshops again in November 2016.

All workshop participants will be eligible to pick up a free home composting kit from one of our waste management facilities.

If you already compost at home or would like to start, you can take a look at our fact sheets for some useful tips. Find out amazing things you can compost, how to build your own compost bay, and how to reduce compost odour.

Household Waste and Recycling Guide

This handy guide tells you what goes into each of your three household bins and what you can and can't recycle.

The guide includes dates for your regular household bin collection and the annual hardwaste and chemical collection services.
