Collection guidelines

  • Place waste on your verge before Monday 6am, but no earlier than seven days before the scheduled start date for your area.
  • Allow up to seven days for collection.
  • Don't obstruct the footpath, your bin service or the line of sight of pedestrians, cyclists and cars.
  • Don't place your waste next to structures or obstructions such as letter boxes, walls, power poles or sprinklers.
  • Only place waste on your verge – not on vacant property or public reserves.

Infringements may be issued for non-compliance with collection guidelines or if your waste is placed on your verge more than seven days prior to the scheduled start date for your area.

If you don’t have a verge, or your verge is too small, contact us.
