Recycling 2.0 - Waste and recycling services

Council’s new waste and recycling service has been in operation since February 2020.  Recently, Council undertook a review of the first year of the service, which considered operational data and community feedback. Thank you to every one of the almost 6,000 residents who participated in the review. To continue to improve our waste service, we will soon be implementing a number of adjustments to the service including:

  • introducing weekly collections for general waste
  • transitioning ‘green’ (food and garden) waste collections to fortnightly
  • trialling the use of compostable paper bags for use in the food and garden waste bin

We are currently developing an implementation plan for the changes and will keep the community updated on timeframes. Until then, it is business as usual with the current scheduled collections and calendars.

For residents who have already participated in the free COVID-19 interim upsize for garbage bins, you can continue to use the 240L bin at no charge for the time being. Council will be in touch over the course of the year to advise of further changes to this program.

If you would like to be part of the compostable paper bag trial please register your interest here or call customer service on 1300 179 944. There is no limit to numbers participating in the trial.
