Bin Collection Days

The finder also produces a printable copy of your bin collection calendar for your address for the next 12 months. Alternatively, you can fill in a form to receive the generic Recycling Calendar fridge card.
You can now dispose of your green garden waste in a lime lid green waste bin. There is a weekly fee for the green waste bin and at this stage only available in listed suburbs. Please visit the green waste page on the city council website for more details.
