Green waste - kerbside collection

For a yearly fee Council offers a collection service for household green waste. Green waste bins are available in 120 and 240 Litre sizes. These bins can be used to dispose of green waste such as grass clippings, cut up branches and prunings. Green waste bins are collected fortnightly on the same day as garbage and on the alternate week to recycling collections. This is a user pays service.

Please fill out the form to request a green waste, recycling or general waste bin. Please note, this is a user-pays service. Should your application be successful, the fee will be added to your rates.
I hereby confirm that I have the permission of the property owner: * (required)
It is the ratepayer’s responsibility to notify Council if additional bins are no longer required. Charges will continue to apply until Council receives notification from the ratepayer requesting the service to end and the bins have been removed.
