Bin collection days
Do you live in a high fire risk area?
If your bin collection day is on a Friday, then you live in a designated high-fire risk area.
We postpone waste collection in these areas on code red days - this is not the same as total fire ban day. If this occurs, leave your bins out until they are collected.
How to place bins out for collection
Place your bins out the night before and bring them in by the end of your collection day.
Present your bins
||At least half a metre (50cm) apart|
||With a minimum of 1 metre clearance from parked cars or any other obstructions|
||With a minimum of 1 metre clearance from trees, light poles or any other obstructions.|
||In a hammerhead or court bowl (cul-de-sac)
Place your bins on the straight section of the street for collection. Keep the bowl of court free of parked cars.
||In a dead end street
Place your bins on one side to assist with collection. Keep the end of the dead end street free of parked cars.
Get help taking out your bins
We offer a collection service for residents who, due to frailty, disability, medical or mobility conditions, are unable to place their bins out for the weekly waste collection.
