Bin collections and etiquette

Bin etiquette

Bin etiquette is an important part of waste management and helps keep everyone happy.

  • Place your bin on the kerbside before 5.00am on your collection day.

  • Ensure your bin is not obstructed by vehicles, overhanging trees, electricity poles and letter boxes.
  • Place your bin with the lid opening towards the roadway.
  • Make sure the lid of your bin is fully closed.
  • Find out what can be placed into your bin. Bins may be rejected if they contain unacceptable material.     
  • Ensure your bin weighs less than 80kg.
  • Space bins one metre apart.
