Placing bins out for collection

There are some important things you should remember when putting out your bins at night ready for collection.

  • Place them out on time
    Place your bins out on the kerbside the evening before, or prior to 4.30am, on your collection day
  • Don’t overfill
    Don’t overfill your bin. Make sure the lid can fully close.
  • Nothing extra
    Don’t place rubbish beside or on top of your bin.
  • Correct weight
    Ensure your bin weighs less than 80kg.
  • Correct spacing
    Space your bins 0.5-1m apart.
  • Easy to access
    Place your bins away from any parked cars, overhanging trees, electricity poles or letter boxes.
