Waste and recycling tips during COVID-19

WAS-Update Website-Key Messages.png

We are working to ensure your recycling and general waste collection service continues as normal. Here are some things you can do to help us get the job done, and to reduce the health risk for your community.

  • General Waste: Bag your general waste (not your recycling). If a bin is knocked over, anything potentially unsafe (like tissues and nappies) will be contained.
  • Recycling: Ensure all your acceptable material is rinsed, loose with lids removed. For information on how to recycle, check our recycling page. Do you have more recycling than you can cope with right night now? Order an extra service and call 9267 9267.
  • Help us help you: Always clear the way for bin day. With many residents staying home, please help maintain clear access for your bin collection on bin day by keeping vehicles away from the bins and ensuring clear access in laneways. Place your bins out before 6am on bin day.
