When is my garden bin collected?

What items can and cannot be put into my garden bin?

Can I put food waste into my garden bin?
No - we currently don't have a facility that can process food organics and garden organics (FOGO) into quality compost but we're working with the State Government's Metropolitan Waste Resource Recovery Group to make this service possible.
Until this happens, we encourage you to recycle your food waste and start composting using your own system.

Where does my garden waste go once collected?
