Rubbish collection

Rubbish collection

All residential properties have a 120-litre general wheelie rubbish bin that is collected each week, although units and flats may share bins.

Write your property number on your bin to help identify it in your street.

Using your rubbish bin

About 12 per cent of rubbish that goes into bins is actually recyclable – find out more about what goes in to your recycling bin on the recycling collection page.

The materials that can be placed into the rubbish bin for collection are listed in the Rubbish Bin Fact Sheet(PDF, 848KB).

Collection days

To check your rubbish, recycle and FOGO waste bin collection days, please use our bin collection function:

When is my bin collected?

You can also print out the relevant calendar:

How to choose the calendar

Please use our bin collection function to see what day your collection falls on. For example, if the search shows your recycling bin collection day is 28 November, look at both calendars. The one that shows 28 November as a recycling collection day (in yellow) is your calendar - Calendar 1.

If the search shows that your recycling is collected on 21 November and you opened a Calendar 1 that shows this week as FOGO, that's not your calendar, yours must be Calendar 2.

If you have any questions, please contact us 03 6238 2711.

Public holidays

Bin collection operates as normal for all public holidays except Christmas Day. Check the website closer to Christmas for updated Christmas Day bin collection information.

If you are the property owner you may request a larger (240-litre) rubbish bin for a fee. If you have a medical condition that requires the need for a larger waste bin, you may be entitled to a rebate.
