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.
The 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.

Additional green waste service
You can order an additional recycling bin at a cost of $80.21 per financial year.
Costs are based on collection and disposal fees, bin provision and maintenance costs, and administration. Service fees are included within the rates notice, subject to annual budgetary reviews and calculated on a pro rata basis.
If you move or no longer require the additional waste collection service, please contact the Council, so the wheelie bin/s can be removed from your property, the Council's records updated and the fee removed from your rates notice.
If you wish to take advantage of this offer or discontinue an existing service, please contact the Council on
9932 1000 or complete the Additional Waste Service form. The wheelie bin will be delivered within five working days.
