How do I place my wheelie bins?

  • Please remember it is your responsibility to ensure your wheelie bins are accessible at all times for our drivers (don’t park your car on the road in front of your wheelie bins, or have branches hanging over your wheelie bins)
  • Put your bins out the night before collection day, or by 6am on collection day
  • Bins must be placed at least 1m apart on the footpath
  • Do not overfill bins

All garbage trucks are fitted with video cameras, allowing Council to monitor wheelie bin collections.  If you believe your bin has been missed, please contact Council.
