Bin placement responsibilities​

With thousands of bins to collect every week, it's important we work together to ensure things run smoothly. 

You can assist us by: 

  • Putting your bins on the kerb as late as possible the night before your scheduled collection;
  • Placing your bins in a position so the truck can collect them easily – that means with the wheels away from the kerb and with a 30cm gap between the bins; and
  • Removing your bins from the kerb as soon as possible after collection.
 Overflowing, overweight or incorrectly placed bins will not be collected.

​​​​Missed services ​

If your rubbish, recycling or garden waste bin was not emptied on your scheduled collection day, contact our Customer Service Centre on 9707 9000. 

Damaged or missing bins

If your bin goes missing, have a look around your street and check with your neighbours. If you can’t find it or it’s damaged (e.g. broken lid or wheel, cracked body), contact our Customer Service Centre on 9707 9000 who can arrange for it to be replaced or repaired.  

​Getting an extra bin for your household

Some households may be eligible for an additional red lidded rubbish bin. To be considered you will need to demonstrate you are using the existing waste and recycling services as effectively as possible. Applicants are individually assessed by our Waste Operations Team and the service incurs an additional fee.
If your yellow recycling or green garden cuttings bins regularly fill up you can apply for an additional bin, without an additional assessment, however, an additional fee will be incurred for the service.
You can complete and submit an ap​​​plication form at any time.
