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.
