Household waste and bins
Council provides residents in the domestic collection area with three bins:
- a red-lidded general waste bin collected weekly
- a yellow-lidded recycling bin collected fortnightly
- a green-lidded garden organics bin collected fortnightly.
If your property is within the domestic collection area, you can take part in our yearly clean-outs for hazardous household chemicals and junk items too bulky for the household bin.
You can also take waste to our waste management facilities at Surf Beach, Moruya and Brou.
