Green waste services
The green waste service includes an option for a 240 litre or 120 litre wheelie bin with a green lid for grass, leaves and prunings. Different fees apply for each sized bin.
What goes in my green waste bin?
Place green waste loosely in the bin - no plastic bags.
What not to put in the green waste bin
- NO plastic bags
- NO plant pots
- NO bricks, rubble, sand, soil or dirt
- NO large logs or stumps
- NO extra bags, boxes or bundles of green waste
- NO food waste
- NO nappies or household rubbish
- NO syringes
Wrong items in green waste bins ruin the green waste processing system.
Council incurs fees for the removal of incorrect items and cartage to landfill, which ultimately costs the community.
Handy green waste hint
Place material with heavy moisture content eg. freshly mown grass clippings near the top of your bin to prevent sticking.
Missed a collection?
