Every household has been provided with bins to service their own waste and recycling needs.

Placing the things in a neighbours bin is unfair and can cause problems in the recycling system.

If you have too much waste or recycling for a single bin collection you could:

  1. Ask your neighbou​r to use their bin;
  2. Store the waste for the following collection; or
  3. Take the extra waste to a transfer station.

If you frequently exceed the capacity of your existing waste collection service you can get additional collection services for your rubbish (red lid), recycling (yellow lid), or garden waste (green lid) bins, . To apply for this service, call please contact Canterbury Bankstown City Council's Customer Service Centre on 9707 9000 to apply for this service (fees apply).
