Waste and recycling

Council's 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 collected fortnightly
  • a green-lidded garden organics bin collected fortnightly.

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

Hard waste collection

Council provides a free hard waste collection once a year for residential properties using our domestic waste collection service.
